2 Don’t Hold Your Phone Too Close
Recommendations vary, but Apple advises that you hold the phone around 10 to 20 inches away from your face. We’ll add to that: When in doubt, try holding your phone farther away. If the phone gets too close, then the Face ID scan seems more likely to get confused. This situation is especially true in close quarters, such as rolling over in bed to check a text or looking at your phone without glasses/contacts.
