This year, Apple has removed Touch ID from the iPhone X in favor of a new security measure, known as Face ID. Basically, Face ID is a great feature that uses advanced technologies to accurately map your face to unlock your device. According to Apple, the company’s security measure is not something that can be tricked by a photo, mainly thanks to its new technologies.
However, Face ID sometimes can become a cause of annoyance, as it doesn’t work the way you think. Fortunately, Apple allows you to disable Face ID on your iPhone X. Once you have turned off Face ID, you will have to enter your passcode to unlock your device.
In this step-by-step guide, we will go through the steps to disable Face ID on your iPhone X. Before we proceed, note that Face ID is iPhone X-exclusive feature, so you need an iPhone X to get the feature. The iPhone X will hit stores on November 3 this year.
How to disable Face ID on your iPhone X
Step one: First off, you need to press the side button five times on your new iPhone X. Once you do that, you will see the Power Off screen and move to the next step
Step two: Once you are done, hit the Cancel button. If you change your mind, enter the passcode you have already set up on your device to re-activate Face ID.
Alternatively, you can turn off Face ID by heading to Settings > Face ID & Passcode and turn off Face ID on your device.
