The old belief is that the users can’t have both the security and convenience and that is seen as especially true in your digital life. But in the recent months there are actually time when Apple ecosystem so tightly linked across its platforms and it can actually undermine its own security.
For example, the Face ID is the best example of the security catch 22, a company like Apple can end up in. It is fast and easy to learn available on many of users devices and yes both secure and convenient. It is what the users imagine that when they think of the Apple innovation.

In the normal conditions the working done by it is great. But it is not like to claim the last 18 months qualify as normal circumstances, and for all the disruption the pandemic has caused and it is also exposed the weak point of the Apple tightly Bound ecosystem. The face Id is tie with the iPhone unlock with the Apple watch feature. When the Apple watch is unlocked on users wrist then they can use it to open their mobile phone when face ID does not recognize you, and it is slice of convenience for the pandemic world.
But the issue is that it seems incredibly forgiving. But for one time the Apple watch unlocks the iPhone when it was even not at locked. In simple words there is need to look at the iPhone to unlock it, so that with one weakness in the system it disturbs the whole ecosystem, and it is as risk. It is not in just iPhone it also affects the Mac. An unlock Apple watch can log the users into the connected Mac provided and users have to set up unlock with the Apple watch. Then users need a four digit pass code for the Watch and suddenly the Mac contents are all yours.
This would not happen if the Apple ecosystem were not so tightly bound. It is only having the devices that are closely connected and interact and communicate with each other and that an Apple Watch is able to unlock an iPhone when the users faced is obscured. It is not to say that the Apple can’t work out the way to have both and it let the users have to their cake and eat it. But the issue is anyone who steals the iPhone and Apple watch only have a trivial obstacle to surmount, and to gain access to all of the users personal files and information, and that is far from the security conscious Apple.
