Face ID is one of the most talked-about features of iPhone X. Thanks to the superior TrueDepth camera, it works securely; allowing you to unlock your device with ease. While unlocking your device with Face ID, you need to keep your eyes opened and look at your device. It won’t unlock your phone if you have your eyes closed or don’t look at your device. But what about the people who are blind or have low vision?
Apple has ensured that people with physical limitations are also able to use the facial recognition system. They need to disable require attention for Face ID on iPhone X to unlock their device conveniently.
People with physical limitations (for instance, the ones who can’t move their head) need to select “Accessibility Options” while enrolling their face. It won’t require full range head motion to capture different angles. Though it’s still secure to use, it needs more consistency in how you look at your device. Additionally, they can also make Face ID require less attention to be able to unlock the iPhone X with ease.
How to Disable “Require Attention” for Face ID on iPhone X
If you don’t want Face ID to require that you look with your eyes open at iPhone X, you can turn off Require Attention for Face ID. One thing you need to know that it’s automatically turn off if you enable VoiceOver during initial set up.
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iPhone.
Step #2. Tap on General.
Step #3. Now, you need to tap on Accessibility.
Step #4. Finally, turn off Require Attention for Face ID.
From now onwards, you can unlock your iPhone X using Face ID even with your eyes closed. If you ever want the facial recognition system to require the full range of focus, follow the same steps mentioned above and turn off Require Attention.
Accessibility has long been one of the most significant features of iOS. And the ability to let people with visual impairments use Face ID has made it even richer.
