I switched to iPhone 11 recently and I find FaceID rather disappointing, it often analyzes my face several times before recognizing it and sometimes I have to type my code. I tried to reconfigure it and do it in different situations but it didn't change anything.

Does the technology improve when you use it, with a kind of learning machine? How do I get him to recognize my face better?

  • Are you running the most up-to-date version of iOS 13? Check if you have any software updates available by going to Settings app → General → Software Update. If not, make sure you update to the latest available version of iOS and see if that improves face recognition. Also try re-enrolling your face after installing the software update.

  • @Lulucmy Are you sure you're looking into the front camera to unlock it ?

As the system is used, it learns about typical variations in a user's appearance, and will adjust its registered face data to match aging, facial hair growth, and other changes using the Neural Engine. The system will recognize a face wearing hats, scarves, glasses, many sunglasses,9 facial hair or makeup.10

    See the comment by Nimesh.. re-enrolling the face could improve a bit. you anyway don't have any machine learnt data to lose IF you are not using it for months.
