Your new iPhone is filled with advanced technologies.Here are some of our favorite tips and tricks to help you get the most out of them.
Face ID is a natural and secure way to unlock, authenticate, and pay. It’s also attention aware, meaning your iPhone authenticates only when you intentionally look at it. If you haven’t already, go to Settings › Face ID, then follow the steps to enroll.
Unlock. Simply raise your iPhone and glance at it to unlock. If it’s on a table or other flat surface, you can raise or tap to wake it first.
Preview. Reveal notifications and messages by glancing at them when they appear.
Pay. Double-click the side button and glance at your iPhone when using Apple Pay to make purchases securely.
Keep reading. With attention awareness, your iPhone recognizes when you’re reading so the screen stays lit.
Quiet notifications. With attention awareness, you can glance at an alarm or ringer notification to instantly lower the volume.
Take selfies in Portrait mode. Shoot selfies with a beautiful depth‑of‑field effect that keeps your face in sharp focus against an artfully blurred background. Switch to the front-facing camera in the Camera app, then swipe to Portrait.
Use Portrait Lighting for studio-quality effects. Portrait Lighting allows you to control lighting effects with shadows, spotlights, and more. In Portrait mode, just swipe right in the menu to choose an effect. You can also use the Photos app to edit lighting effects on Portrait mode photos shot on iPhone X.
