How to Set Up Face ID on iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

Technology seems to grow more and more by the day. Face ID, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus’s newest feature, is the high-tech Face Recognition system that uses vertical-cavity surface-emitting (VCSEL) laser diodes and machine learning. Your face can be recognized out of a MILLION other faces! You’ll be able to unlock your phone with just a glance. Apple Pay can even be approved with just a quick look at your phone.  A really cool feature is the ability to mimic your expressions – using 3D emoji – in real time. Face ID will become a staple of all future products and will likely make the process of using one’s phone seamless.  In this article, we will teach you how to set up Face ID on your iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Please follow the step by step instructions below!

Setting up Face ID

  1. Go to Settings -> Passcode & Face ID
  2. Tap “Enroll Face”
  3. Tap “Get Started” and proceed with the onscreen instructions in order set your face
  4. In order for Face ID to appropriately assess your face, and its shape, place your face within the frame – then gently move your head in a circle to access this feature
