Only for sports bike riders, I have a Harley, there are of course open face helmets but that still means removing the bandana covering my face (and if I’m not wearing a bandana then I’m wearing a helmet with a visor and face ID doesn’t work properly through even a clean visor).
I disagree. FaceID has a lot of limitations. All my friends with an iPhone X seem to put their passcodes in an awful lot. FaceID doesn’t work in a number of situations. Touch ID is the same, but I don’t have those issues. Would love to have both options.
Never had an issue on my iPhone X with Face ID, and it’s even faster on my XS Max. Maybe your friends have the Require Attention option enabled for Face ID. I don’t have that enabled as I tend to use sunglasses a lot. But in brief testing with half a dozen other people, only my face was able to open the X with that option disabled, so it seems just as secure.
When I tested an X at work, I found it super annoying as I often have my phone flat on the desk and like to unlock quickly, Touch ID works for this flawlessly. I just seem to want to unlock my phone a lot without directly looking at it.
I know Apple won’t do it, but an under the screen Touch ID sensor + faceID would be awesome.
I think I’m very stubborn in how I use my devices. In a bid to be less distracted I will often keep my phone away from me but in reachable distance so every now and again I can check my notifications and just being able to press the home button is great.
Sure, I do that too. I just wait the 3 seconds it takes for me to put in my pin in that case. It’s not a drama. I would like the option of having my iPhone auto unlock when it’s in proximity of my Watch. That’d do away with any issues.
