At this point, we know with a reasonable amount of certainty that Apple’s premium OLED iPhone will sport a new and advanced Face ID authentication system. Now, thanks to the huge iOS 11 golden master (GM) leak on Saturday, we know a bit more about Face ID’s setup process.

Brazil-based iOS developer Guilherme Rambo shared a handful of photos and videos via Twitter over the weekend that detail Face ID’s initial processes.

Near the bottom of this menu are the usual passcode options.
