Apple just released iOS 15 to all users. After three months of testing and some delayed features, the company is also revealing what security issues it is addressing with the latest version of its iPhone operating system.
Apple says iOS 15 brings a fix to Face ID technology, which of course is available for all devices with the TrueDepth sensor: from the iPhone X to the iPhone 12 line to the third generation iPad Pro.
Here’s what Apple revealed that this happened:
Impact: A 3D model that is constructed in such a way that it appears as if the registered user can authenticate using Face ID
Description: This issue was addressed by improving the Face ID anti-spoofing models.
The company said it “improved Face ID anti-spoofing mockups,” which everyone is reminded of when the technology was introduced with the iPhone X and people tried to bypass their security by creating 3D masks. After all, we found out that some identical twins each other’s phones will likely handle a lot more than any 3D model or mask.
Even though it’s an important security solution, Apple says it’s already been fixed. The company is also making some fixes with the Neural Engine, CoreML, Siri, Kernel, Preferences, WebKit, and more.
