My iPhone X ringer volume had gone too low for incoming calls. I tried increasing the volume level and even reset the smartphone but in vain. The weird behavior of the ringer volume continued to play hide and seek with me until I had an interface with this well-known feature – “Attention Aware.”
Powered by the TrueDepth camera, Attention Aware automatically lowers your iPhone X volume when you are looking at your device. And, when you aren’t paying attention to your smartphone, it increases the volume to alert you. Besides, it also dims the display of your device when you aren’t looking at it.
Practically, it’s a well thought out feature and intelligently designed to fit your needs. Moreover, it also prevents the unnecessary battery consumption.
What if you find this feature a bit weird, as you want the ringer volume to behave normally? No problem, you can choose to disable Attention Aware on your iPhone X to return to normalcy.
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iPhone X.
Step #2. Now, tap on Face ID and enter the Passcode.
Step #3. Next, turn off Attention Aware Features.
That’s done! From now onwards, your iPhone X ringer volume won’t lower even if you are looking at your smartphone.
If you ever want to get this smart feature back in action again, follow these same steps and turn on the toggle for Attention Aware Features in the end.
Have your say
Luckily, I no longer wonder why the volume alerts of my iPhone behave so abnormally. Though it’s one of the biggest highlights of Apple’s flagship device, some of you might not be aware of it. Let me know what you think of this feature?
