so is there anything stopping people who steal your brand new iphone from just pointing your phone at a picture of you to unlock it?

@KS Apple claims to have accounted for photos and sculpted masks by using IR and depth mapping. You also need to be directing your gaze to the phone...

...still seems more cumbersome and less flexible than TouchID though

@KS I liked the headline today that Apple said, "Squeeze the sides of the phone if someone is forcing you to use your face to unlock."

Which will help so much if you're handcuffed and the phone fished out of your pocket. (As they mention it using IR I'm guessing a photo shouldn't work, but that's a pure guess)
