Face ID is one of the selling points of iPhone X this year. Apple’s new security measure replaces the traditional Touch ID fingerprint scanner, allowing iPhone owners to quickly unlock their device with a glance. Face ID opens the way for an advanced security measure that will be used for future iPhone models.
If you just got a new iPhone X, setting up and using Face ID may be a little bit confusing. With that in mind, we have created a list of the best tips to make the most of Apple’s new security system.
Before we begin, keep in mind that Face ID is exclusive to iPhone X, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus stick to the Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
How to speed up Face ID on your iPhone X
Face ID needs to verify your face every time you glance at your device. While this practice aims to make sure that it’s you, other users may find it annoying. Fortunately, there is a simple way to remove this process, so you can enter your home screen instantly without any lag.
Now you simply need to glance at your device and swipe up at the same time. Once you do that, you should be on your home screen, eliminating the need to wait for the unlock sign.
Turn off Require Attention for Face ID
The require Attention for Face ID option is automatically enabled when you finish setting up Face ID on your iPhone X. This feature aims to adds an extra layer of security to your device. What it does is to make sure that you are looking at your device. However, if you find this feature annoying, you can easily turn it off.
To disable Require Attention for Face ID, head to Settings > General > Accessibility > Face ID & Attention, then turn off the switch for the feature and hit OK to confirm your action.
Make sure you are now up to date
iPhone X ships with iOS 11 on board, but keep in mind that Apple regularly rolls out new updates to fix bugs and errors. To check for updates, head to Settings > General > Software Update and install any available updates.
