How to Set­ting up Face ID

Mac|Life - - CONTENTS -

Pick your op­tions

In Set­tings > Face ID & Pass­code, set Face ID to un­lock your iPhone, con­firm Ap­ple pur­chases, au­tho­rise Ap­ple Pay transactions and/or en­able ac­cess to items stored in iCloud Key­chain or a third–party pass­word app. Any op­tions you turn off need your pass­code in­stead.

Learn your face

To set up Face ID (if you didn’t do so when in­vited on start­ing up your new iPhone), tap Set Up Face ID, then Get Started, then roll your head in a circle as in­structed so that the depth sen­sor can do its work. Af­ter do­ing this twice, tap Done. You’ll still need a pass­code as a backup.

Ad an­other look

In iOS 12, there’s now an op­tion to set up an al­ter­nate ap­pear­ance. This is like adding an­other fin­ger­print in Touch ID, and is in­tended for peo­ple who some­times wear glasses or head­gear. Note that the only way to re­move an ap­pear­ance is to scroll down and tap Reset Face ID.

Face ID in ac­tion

Face ID will un­lock your iPhone when you pick it up (if Set­tings > Dis­play & Bright­ness > Raise to Wake is on) or af­ter you tap to wake it. You can also use it for other pur­poses you set. By de­fault, it needs eye con­tact; if you find it hes­i­tant, turn off Re­quire At­ten­tion for Face ID.
