Apple marked the 10-year-anniversary of the iPhone family in 2017. On the special occasion, the company launched their new iPhone X. The smartphone is the first ever Apple product that features a bezel-less front panel. According to a report by Tech Radar, the handset also comes along with Face ID. The Cupertino giant considers it to be one of the primary selling points of iPhone X. Individuals can gain access to the handset by merely looking at it. The front-facing 3D camera scans the user’s face and grants access only if his/her print exists in the device. According to Tech Radar, the feature also helps protects notifications from unknown Faces.

Everything you need to know

The iPhone X comes with a setting that hides notifications from faces whose face prints do not exist in the device. As noted by Phone Arena, users are required to activate this setting in the smartphone. It is only then that the device will function accordingly. The scanning is constantly on a look-out for any unknown face peeping into the device. If it detects someone doing so, it will simply provide generic information. On the other hand, if the scanner recognizes the owner then it will provide a more detailed version of the information. If this particular feature turns out to function successfully, then it will be very useful for iPhone X owners. Smartphone users aren’t necessarily required to own the iPhone X. They can get this function through iOS 11 too.
