With the advent of the iPhone X, a new way of authenticating and unlocking devices with the Apple logo has also seen the light of day - Face ID. This feature made it possible to unlock the device with a face and replaced the previously used Touch ID, which worked on the principle of scanning fingerprints.
Since then, you will find this feature on all the brand's top models, including:
and as well on Apple iPad devices
From time to time, however, it is possible to encounter a situation where the Face ID stops working partially or completely. Even a seemingly simple solution can fix such a problem. Today we will show you the ones that you can do by yourself.
Minor errors or various applications can cause your mobile, in this case specifically unlocking it, to stop working as it should. Sometimes, however, you can do just a little few things to make broken Face ID work again. The procedure is as follows:
Follow these steps:
If a simple restart didn't help, it's a good idea to check your settings. You must enable the Face ID unlock feature by doing these steps.
With the following steps you’ll get the access.
Each version of iOS carries certain bugs and fixes a lot of old bugs at the same time. If you're not sure if you've updated your device yet, follow these steps:

Updating your system can often resolve the problematic behavior of your device. However, always remember to back up your data before a major update so that you don't lose any photos or other valuable content or information.
Resetting, thus deleting and resetting this function, is another possible solution to fix the Face ID yourself.
After resetting the Face ID, we recommend restarting the device and then testing whether the function works. Also keep in mind that when setting up and using Face ID, it is necessary to pay attention to certain facts:
• The device must be at a distance of about arm's length from your face.
• Face cannot be covered with any mask – eyes, nose and mouth have to be fully visible.
• We recommend to not have sunglasses before using Face ID.
The last two options are much more radical than the previous ones. Prolonged use of your device may result in different settings or a combination of them causing Face ID to stop working fully. In this case (if no previous step helped), all settings must be reset.
After resetting the settings, the device restarts. You will then need to re-enable and set up Face ID in the settings. If it still doesn't work, the last option is to erase the entire device.
But before you do, be sure to back it up using iTunes or iCloud. Then aim again between the Settings - General - Reset - Delete all content and settings.
