How to Unlock iPhone 11/11 Pro (Max)- Dr
While using the Dr.Fone – Screen Unlock (iOS) solution is by far the easiest and most effective way to get rid of the Face ID lock screen on your device and will get you back to having a working device, there are other options you can take if you need to see what will work.
Below, we’re going to explore five of the most common and most tested ways to help you get Face ID working again! Method One – Force a Restart </p><img src="https://drfone.wondershare.com/images/article/2019/06/force-restart-iphone-x.jpg" alt="force restart" /><p> Sometimes, your device might bug just from general use, perhaps having a few apps open that don’t work well together, or just something has glitched out. This can happen from time to time and may sometimes cause issues with your Face ID. To resolve it, simply force a hard reset by pressing the Volume Up button, then the Volume Down button, and then holding the Power button until the Apple Logo is displayed. Method Two – Update Your Device </p><img src="https://drfone.wondershare.com/images/article/2019/09/iphone-update-software.jpg" alt="update iphone 11" /><p> If there’s a known bug or error in the code of your phone or the firmware you’re using, Apple will release an update for you to download and fix the bug. However, if you don’t install the update, you’re not going to get the fix. Using your iPhone, or by connecting it to your computer and therefore iTunes, you can update your phone to ensure you’re running the latest version. Method Three – Check Your Face ID Settings </p><img src="https://drfone.wondershare.com/images/article/2019/09/faceid-iphone-settings.jpg" alt="check face id" /><p> Perhaps one of the most common problems people are facing is the fact that their device might not be set up properly and the Face ID settings may not be accurate and are therefore causing a problem. Simply go into your Settings menu, and make sure you’ve allowed your Face ID to actually unlock your phone using the toggle switch below. Method Four – Factory Reset Your Device </p><img src="https://drfone.wondershare.com/images/article/2019/09/factory-reset-iphone.jpg" alt="reset iphone 11" /><p> If you feel like you’ve tried everything and you’re still not getting the results you’re after, one main approach you could take it to fully factory reset your device. You can do this using your iTunes software, using the Settings menu on your iPhone, or by using third-party software. Method Five – Retrain Your Face If the feature isn’t working, and you’ve tried all of the above, try setting your face again to see whether it will work. Sometimes, you may capture your face, but perhaps a shadow or the light may be different, and it’s unable to detect. Retrain Face ID, but make sure you’re in a well-lit room where there is the least interference.
Just follow the steps we listed above!
