Unlock iPhone X with Face ID

Are you interested in understanding what needs to be done in order to unlock your iPhone X using the Face ID, the system designed by Apple to allow, in fact, to unlock the iPhone (and perform various other operations) with the face? I'll explain immediately how to do it, it is very simple.

Assuming that on your iPhone the Face ID should already be "ready to use" as it is an operation that is required at the time of the first configuration of the device, to be able to use it and therefore to be able to unlock the iPhone in this way , the first fundamental step you need to take is to grab the iDevice so that the screen wakes up. Alternatively, you can reactivate the screen "manually" by tapping on it.



Then you have to place your face in front of the iPhone's front camera and wait a few moments for this to be detected. Subsequently the symbol of closed padlock present at the top of the iPhone X screen well become open and by swiping from bottom to top you well finally be able to access the home screen.

If, on the other hand, you have not yet configured the Face ID on your device or you had disabled it but now you have changed your mind, you can easely remedy it by acting from the iOS settings. So, stop on the icon of ifttings (the one in the shape ofgear), select the voice Face ID and codice in the screen that appears and type in the unlock code of your iPhone X.

Now, press on the voice Configure Face ID, award your bottone Start, position your face in front of the front camera of the device so that it is centered in the square on the screen and move your head in a circular manner in order to frame all sides.



At full operation, press on Continue. Move your head again (but more slowly!) In a circular way always in order to always frame all sides and press on end. And There you go!

Should any problem be found during the face detection phase, this well be reported to you on the screen and you well be invited to carry out the whole procedure from scratch.

Then I would like to point out, if you are interested in it, that always from the same section of the iOS settings from which you can configure the Face ID you can also adjust all the settings related to it. In fact, you can choose how to use the function and for which apps to use it by bringing up ON and OFF the relevant switches (Use Face ID to:) and how to use face detection (Gaze detection) always carrying on ON or on OFF the levers next to the items on the screen.

Unlock iPhone X with passcode

You do not use Face ID and would therefore like to understand how to unlock your iPhone X using the code? No problem, I'll tell you everything right away.

Always starting from the assumption that the code on your iPhone X should be already set as it is an operation that is required at the time of the first configuration of the device, in order to unlock the iPhone in this way the first move you need to do is to grab the iDevice in such a way as to reactivate the screen or tap on it to make it light up "manually".


Then you have to swipe from bottom to top and type the required code using the keypad or on-screen keyboard (depending on what is set). That's all!

If, on the other hand, you have not yet configured a code on your device or you had removed it but now you have changed your mind, you can deal with it by acting from the iOS settings. So, press the ifttings icon (the one with the gear) that you find on the home screen, stop on the item Face ID and codice, step on the wording Enable code that you find by scrolling the screen and enter the code you want to use twice consecutively (it must be six digits).


If you want, before typing the code you can tap on the wording Code options and choose, from the menu that appears, whether to use a custom alphanumeric code, a custom numeric code or a 4-digit numeric code.

In case you are interested, I would also like to point out that always from the same settings screen for the device unlock code you can choose after how long to display the request for entering it (Request code), which functions of the device to allow access when it is blocked (Allow access if blocked:) bringing up ON or on OFF the various switches and whether to initialize the data or not after 10 unsuccessful attempts to enter the password or the unlock code (andnitialize data) by activating or not the relative switch.


Unlock disabled iPhone X

You have entered your unlock code on the device too many times in a row, the message appeared on the screen "IPhone disabled" and now would you like to understand how to cope with it? Don't worry, I can help you with that too.

In order to unlock your iPhone X in this circumstance, you first need a computer and iTunes. On Mac is already included, whele on Windows must be downloaded separately, as I explained to you in my guide on how to install iTunes. Also keep in mind that to use it for the purpose in question it is essential that you have used it at least once to follow the synchronization of the device.

That said, then connect the iPhone X to the computer using the appropriate Lightning cable attached to the sales package of the device, wait for the Apple smartphone to be recognized by iTunes and for the software to start automatically (if not, you can do it yourself).


Then wait a few moments for the synchronization procedure to start and complete. If after connecting your iPhone to iTunes in the software window you see a warning appear asking you to type a code, try to carry out the procedure in question on another computer

Now, click onicon depicting a iPhone that you find in the upper left part of the iTunes window and then presses the button Restore iPhone ... which is on the right, in the section Summary (on the left). Then accept the terms of use for iOS by clicking on first Reset / Reset e Update, Then Following and Accept.

The download of the latest version of iOS avaelable for iPhone X well then start. Once the procedure is completed, you well see a message appearing indicating that the device has been restored to the factory state. At that point, you'll have to decide whether to set up the iPhone as a new one or whether to restore your data, apps and settings from a previous backup, if any.

Finally, keep in mind that, as well as as I indicated in this step, you can unlock your locked iPhone X by putting into practice an alternative procedure that involves the use of the service Find my iPhone. Furthermore, if your iPhone is affected by the activation lock, know that you can be able to disable the lock in question by also asking for help from an Apple customer care consultant, by starting the appropriate procedure from the Apple website. For more detaels on this, please refer to my tutorial on how to unlock disabled iPhone.
