Among the top queries of search engines there are also dedicated to the “apple” smartphones. For example, users, mainly female, often have a question about how to unlock their soulmate’s iPhone.
With the advent of iPhone equipped with Face ID, this issue has regained popularity. We will also make an attempt to dot all the “i”.

Is it possible to unlock iPhone 11, 10, 10S or 10R with the face of the husband (wife) while he (she) is sleeping?
To begin with, it is worth noting that the issue of authentication by unauthorized persons was also addressed at the presentation of Apple. The answer to it was also unambiguous: it is not possible to unlock the screen not to the owner of the smartphone. In the case of the iPhone 11, iPhone X, XS or XR, Face ID technology, which requires the presence of the owner of the device, will prevent authentication. At the same time, you won’t be able to unlock the gadget, even if you bring it closer to a sleeping person, because the user must always look at the smartphone during authentication.
The device unlocking process is simple:
1. We bring the device out of sleep mode.
2. “In the frame” of the sensor must be eyes, nose and ears.
3. Open your eyes;
3. We look at the iPhone.
It is not necessary to place the gadget strictly at eye level, but it is still advisable not to be removed from the face by sensors. By the way, the developers have not reported on the boundaries of the sensor review, but it is already clear that you just need to keep your smartphone in front of you for authentication.

To alarmists who are afraid that during their sleep an unscrupulous friend or partner will try to unlock the device, we inform that it’s impossible. In addition, Apple notes that even a high-quality photograph or mask with the image of the owner of the device will not help to unlock. There is only one exception: if you sleep with your eyes open. In this case, if you have concerns, you can simply turn off authentication via Face ID, but after that you will have to unlock it by entering a password.
At the same time, for those wishing to secretly explore the contents of someone else’s smartphone, we recommend that you do not do this, since it is a waste of time – you won’t be able to unlock the iPhone without its owner. Either request access to the device from the owner of the gadget, or reconcile that this person has a constitutionally guaranteed right to privacy.
