Thanks plum iOS 11 GM became known to many chips for the next iPhone and iOS 8 11. One of them was the Face ID setting (a new way to unlock the device). This was written by 9to5Mac.
The discovery was made a short video showing animated painted face. In the video, if you specify how to move my head to configure the scanner. In addition, it appeared that the new function will not be called the Pearl ID, Face ID and Apple will replace the Touch ID, as mentioned earlier.
The instructions are very similar to the one that allows you to configure the usual fingerprint sensor: you need to create a password, then perform several actions to download the face in the system.
In the beginning it is necessary to slowly rotate the head “in a circle, looking at the screen.” Further, it is written that the better your face is, the more it persist: “Face ID works better when all the angles of your face are captured”. Unlike the Touch ID settings, the user can interrupt the process and finish it later.
During scanning, the system gives helpful tips like “Keep your iPhone at a distance of 10 to 20 inches from your face and tilt your head down / left / right / up”. the iPhone detects when your face is closed, out of sight, or if during the installation there is another person.
Thanks to the new scanner, the device can determine when a person looks at the screen and turn off or turn on the screen. So, iPhone will not sleep while viewing videos or reading.
In order to fully complete the setup Face ID and full to use the new feature, you need to go to the end of the installation procedure: it includes two scanning. After that everything should work as quickly and conveniently as when using Touch ID.
