In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on Face ID & Passcode. This option is located below Touch ID & Passcode.

Step 3: Set Up Face ID

Tap on Set Up Face ID to begin setting up your facial recognition. Make sure you are in a well-lit environment and hold your iPhone in front of your face.

Your iPhone will guide you through the process of positioning your face within the frame. Follow the instructions by moving your head in a circular motion while keeping it inside the frame.

  • Note:
    • If you wear glasses or have certain facial hair styles, you may be prompted to slightly adjust your appearance during this process.
    • You can also tap on Accessibility Options to set up an alternate appearance if needed.

Step 4: Complete Face ID Setup

Your iPhone will now analyze and capture various aspects of your face. This includes mapping key points and creating a depth map. Once the scan is complete, you will see a message that says Face ID is now set up.

Step 5: Test Face ID

To ensure that Face ID is working correctly, try unlocking your iPhone 12 using your face. Simply press the power button and look at your device. If Face ID recognizes you, the lock icon will animate and unlock your iPhone.

  • Note:
    • If Face ID fails to recognize you, make sure your face is properly positioned within the frame and try again.
    • If you experience persistent issues with Face ID, you can tap on Reset Face ID in the Face ID & Passcode settings menu.

Additional Tips:

  • Alternate Appearance:
  • If you want to set up an alternate appearance for Face ID, follow these steps:

    1. In the Face ID & Passcode settings menu, tap on Set Up an Alternate Appearance.
    2. Follow the on-screen instructions to scan and set up your alternate appearance.
  • Password Options:
  • In case Face ID fails to recognize you or if you prefer using a passcode, you can also set up a passcode as an alternative option in the Face ID & Passcode settings menu.

  • iCloud Keychain:
  • If you have iCloud Keychain enabled on your iPhone 12, Face ID can be used to autofill passwords and authenticate purchases securely across apps and websites.

Now that you have successfully set up Face ID on your iPhone 12, you can enjoy the convenience and security it offers. With just a glance, you can unlock your device and access various features effortlessly.

Remember to keep your face visible to the front-facing camera and avoid obstructing it with objects or your hand for the best Face ID experience.
