In addition to its square exterior, one of the first things you'll surely notice about the new new iPad 2018
Instead, Apple has brought the Face ID to the iPad for the first time. In fact, it's the first device outside the iPhone to receive the company's facial recognition feature.
Face ID on the iPad Pro works in many ways like on the iPhone. However, the feature has learned some new tricks. Let's take a look.
During the initial setup of your iPad Pro, you will be prompted to set the face ID. If you skip this process, do not worry. Can you set up the Face ID in Settings > Face ID and passcode > Set Face ID .
The setup process takes less than a minute. You need to hold the iPad Pro in front of you, with the top of the iPad Pro facing up. This is the only time the position of the true depth camera system is relevant when using the face ID (more on this below).
The Face ID needs to create a map of your face if you want. To do this, the camera system must scan your face twice. Hold the iPad up, make sure your face is visible in a circle on the screen, and then rotate your face to fill in the lines around the circle. It's easiest to move your face in a big circle. Repeat the scan again and you're done.
Location does not matter
If you're using an iPhone with Face ID, you can only unlock your phone if you hold it in vertical orientation, with the top of the phone facing up.
With the iPad Pro, the position of the True Depth camera outside the original setup is irrelevant. Hold the iPad Pro with the sensor facing left, right, up, or down, and the face ID will work.
Camera does not obscure
If you are not actively watching for the position of the true depth camera system, you will probably cover it by hand when picking up and holding the iPad Pro. This of course prevents the unlocking of the iPad Pro.
But instead of leaving it to the user to find out, the iPad Pro displays a message with the words "Camera covered" directly above the clock, and an arrow points to the position of the camera.
This warning is not only displayed on the lock screen, but also if you have covered the camera while using the face ID, such as the camera. For example, when buying an app in the App Store.
How far can you be removed?
If you are too far away, the iPad either believes that the camera is covered or a message saying "Face is too far away" is displayed. Lean closer to unlock your iPad. As far as I can tell, you have to be about arm's length.
You can control when the iPad Pro tries to use the Face ID, set up a different look, and adjust other aspects of the Face ID in the iOS Settings app.
Open Settings > Face ID & Passcode and enter your passcode when prompted.
Go to the setting and make sure the face ID can be used if you want or not. For example, you may want Face ID to not work with the auto-fill feature of iOS passwords. Or you find that the face ID is more reliable for you if you disable . Attention is needed for the Face ID . This requires you to look at the display of the iPad before the face ID works. Note, however, that disabling this feature makes the face ID less secure.
