    And not looking back Having skipped any of the Face ID phones until now ( maybe I feel ugly?) I must say that Face ( other than mask issues) is slick. It's instant and 'almost' works in the dark ie a bedside tiny night-light is sufficient. Price & availability issues not withstanding, it's the better mousetrap and hopefully the stock situation here in the Caribbean ( both devices & accessories such as cases and chargers) can only improve with time. And I fully realize that in a 'covid hobbled culture', some of the stumbling blocks are beyond local control🤨 - Dmo-

    That's great, sir.......I, too, am a fan of FaceID and my experience with it has been great to this point. Anyway, congrats on getting your new iPhone, sir.

    I whined and whined and whined about the advent of Face ID! I didn't want to lose Touch ID... but now, after having used it for a couple of weeks, I can't imagine doing with out it.

    I did not want Face ID, did not trust it, I still don’t trust it but it’s handy ! What I do not like is that my phone wakes up when I pick it up, obviously part of Face ID’s requirements. So you put your phone down, having hit the sleep button, then you pick it up and put it in your pocket and it goes on again,so you hit the sleep button again, you stop,sit down, take your phone out to put it on the table, the damn phone’s on again ! You are in a situation where your phone is colluding in wasting power from it’s already inadequate battery, constantly !
    Several times I have looked down at my shirt pocket and the phone I put in sleep a few minutes ago is awake again, and that my friends, to use a far too mild phrase ”gets up my nose” !!

    Face ID is the best as far as I am concerned it never fails and it’s on spot just wish android devices would get the same to work as well.

    So disable it. Unlock your iPhone, tap the Settings app on the Home screen, select Display & Brightness and tap the slider beside Raise to Wake to disable the feature.

    I personally love Face ID......except when wearing a mask. :-)

    Will doing that keep FaceID active? Or is Raise to Wake required to be on to use it?

    Just tested it. Disabling Raise to Wake does just that; disables that feature. Face ID still works......but you have to wake the screen first. :-)

    Still works with Raise to Wake off. But you have to tap the screen for the phone to wake.

    Along with other out there, I was skeptical about Face ID in the beginning, not now after using it for a while, I wouldn’t use anything else.

    Yes I was also hesitant about Face ID when I switched to the Xs Max from my 7 Plus and now I love it, however during this past year Touch ID would have definitely came in handy when I was wearing my safety Covid-19 mask.

    I really hope that the next latest and greatest iPhone has both Face and Touch ID as rumored.

    thanks,I thought Face ID required that feature. You know I must have had RTW disabled at one time,because I remember having to tap the screen to wake it,must have been one of those update turn ons I missed !

    it's the tap to wake feature that drives me mad, because it turns the screen on almost every time when I pick it up and just slightly tap the screen somewhere.
    I know this can be turned off, but then I'll have to push the sleep/power button whenever I want to do something with it.
    I've been proposing to Apple (many times, via the feedback site) to slightly modify this feature, eg to make it "double tap to wake" instead - like it's available on certain Android phones since quite a while and performing smoothly. Of course never a reaction (too androidish feature?). So I'm afraid I'll have to continue to get annoyed by the screen turning on all the time on my iPhones, as the alternative is to constantly having to push the sleep button, which ain't nice either.
