New legal trouble for Uber, and a kid beats Face ID on his mom's iPhone XIn today's tech news, Uber faces a new sexual assault lawsuit, and a 10-year-old boy discovers he can use his face to unlock his mom's Face ID-protected iPhone X.
This is c|net and here are the stories that matter right now. Uber is facing yet another law suit. A New York based law firm filed a complaint seeking class action status on behalf of two anonymous women and any other riders who may have experienced sexual assault or harassment while using the ride sharing service. The company has been hit with at least three separate lawsuits alleging its drivers sexually assaulted passengers. Multiple states have launched investigations into Uber's screening process for its Drivers. When asked for comment, Uber says it takes the allegations very seriously and is currently reviewing the complaint. A video from a son unlocking his mother's Iphone with his face is raising questions about the security of Face ID on Iphones. In the video, a mother shows herself unlocking her iPhone 10 using face ID, relocking the device, and then handing it over to the 10-year old son, who also successfully unlocks the phone with his face. The family does admit it doesn't always work in different lighting conditions, but plans to continue testing. Apple declined to comment, but referred CNet to its support page for face id. Which mentions the odds of face ID unlocking for someone else could be higher in the instance of twins, similar looking siblings and children under 13 years of age.
