How to Disable Attention Aware Features on iPhone X

You can turn off attention aware features on your iPhone X if you don’t want the TrueDepth camera to automatically dim the display or lower volume when you are looking away.

TrueDepth plays a significant role in making Face ID so effective on iPhone X. A notable feature of Face ID is that even if you are not using the facial recognition system on your device, the TrueDepth camera is automatically activated to support attention aware features. For instance, it will dim the display when you are not looking at your smartphone. Likewise, it will lower the ringer volume on your iPhone, when you are looking at the device. It’s designed to enhance your user- experience. But if you’d instead want to have manual control over these things, you have the option to disable “Attention Aware” features on your iPhone X.

Personally, I find attention aware features very helpful as it offers more privacy. Besides, it can also help you improve the battery life of your iPhone. Anyway, you want to turn it off? Let’s find out how it’s done!
