Since the iPhone X, Face ID has been the standard way to unlock your iPhone. Overall, it works remarkably well and adds a layer of security that Touch ID cannot match. That said, the technology isn't perfect. If you find Face ID not working for you, an iOS setting may be responsible.
Apple is all about security. Therefore, it includes a default setting called "Require Attention to Face ID" that does just that; if iOS doesn't think that your full attention is on your iPhone during a Face ID scan, the scan will be disabled. It's a good idea to make sure that your iPhone is not accidentally unlocked, but it can get in the way if you try to open your iPhone.
Fortunately, the setting is easy to disable. Just open Settings and then tap on "Face ID & Passcode". Enter your passcode, scroll down and toggle the switch next to & # 39; Require Attention for Face ID & # 39; from. Just tap "Ok" in the popup warning you about the security risks, and you're all set.
We can't promise that this particular setting is why your Face ID scans don't work, but it's a good first thing to check. If you are still having problems, there are plenty of other troubleshooting tips that you can follow to solve your problem.
