Re: iPhone X Gesture Guide

Re: iPhone X Face ID

Quite right. An excellent choice for people who get a lot of calls while driving. I can use CarPlay (wired) or BlueTooth (which connects automatically, even if the iPhone is in my pocket) and answer the iPhone with a steering-wheel button, so it's not really an issue for me.

Re: iPhone X Face ID

One thing I haven't seen addressed is waking an iPhone X with Face ID while driving. That seems more dangerous than using Touch ID. This also comes up if there's a passenger that wants to use the driver's iPhone X. Face ID will only accept one face, while Touch ID would accept five fingerprints, eve...

Re: iPhone X Setup

I should add here that Ray and I are talking about one kind of setup: copying information from an older iPhone. If the X is your first iPhone or you want to start fresh, there is no setup. Unbox the iPhone X and turn it on. It just works. That's because Apple is shipping them with a SIM installed (f...
