How to unlock iPhone Face ID with sunglasses this summer with genius trick

IF your sunglasses stop your Face ID working on your iPhone then you may want to try turning off a simple setting.

Some sunglasses, especially dark tinted ones, stop Face ID from working because your iPhone can’t tell if you’re looking at it or not.

How to unlock iPhone Face ID with sunglasses

Your iPhone has a setting called “Require Attention for Face ID.”

If this is switched on, Apple says the “TrueDepth camera will provide an additional level of security by verifying that you are looking”.

This can be a problem if you’re wearing sunglasses that mean your eyes are hard to see.

To turn the setting off, first open Settings and scroll down to “Face ID & Passcode”.

Click on it and you should be asked to enter your passcode.

Scroll down to the Attention section and you’ll be able to switch off the toggle next to “Require Attention for Face ID”.

Once you’ve completed all the steps above, you can check whether your Face ID now works with your sunglasses on.

Sometimes this setting is turned off by default.

If you’re not prone to wearing sunglasses that often, you may want to turn it back on for a bit of extra security.

Why does heat damage batteries?

Here’s what you need to know…

  • Hot temperatures can cause permanent damage to batteries
  • That’s because batteries contain fluids, and work through chemical reactions
  • When heat is applied to a battery, the fluid inside starts to evaporate
  • This damages the internal structure of the battery
  • Components like the voltage indicator can be affected by heat
  • This can allow batteries to charge at too high a rate, which can lead to a loss of electrolytes
  • This can reduce battery life over time
  • As batteries heat up, chemical reactions inside will also occur faster
  • Excessive chemical reactions can reduce long-term battery life
