We saw a number of interesting deals show up on the iPhone Xr, iPhone 11 and more during Flipkart’s Big Billion Days sale and Amazon’s Great Indian Festival sale. During this time if you were able to get an iPhone above iPhone X you might have noticed that it does not come with a Touch ID sensor but it does sport a huge notch on the top. The notch features multiple sensors that allows the phone to accurately detect faces and act as a protection layer, which Apple calls Face ID.

Setting up Face ID is quite a simple process and takes a few seconds to set up. Follow the steps below to set up Face ID on your iPhone:

* To set up Face ID, you need to first set a passcode for your device which you can do by heading into Settings > Face ID & Passcode > Passcode.

* Select if you want a four digit or a six digit passcode.

Note: Face ID will work with hats, scarves, glasses, contact lenses, and many sunglasses. But it will not work with masks, so during these desperate times of COVID-19, you will not be able to unlock the device using this feature most of the time and will have to rely on the good old passcode.
