What are Attention Aware features?
Even if you don’t enroll in Face ID, the TrueDepth camera* intelligently activates to support Attention Aware features. With Attention Aware features, iPhone can check whether you’re paying attention to your device and automatically take action. For example,
- When you’re looking at your device, your display will not dim until you stop looking at your device.
- If you're looking at your device, it will lower the volume sound of your alerts.
If you don’t want to use these features, open the Settings app, tap Face ID & Passcode, then turn off Attention Aware Features.
*The TrueDepth camera is available on iPhone X or later except for iPhone SE. The iPad Pro 11-inch and iPad Pro 12.9-inch also use the TrueDepth camera.
