iPhone X: Face ID, Animojis and MMS

The new iPhone X brings with it some great new features including Face ID and Animojis. You can now unlock your phone with your face and bring your emojis to life.

 

Below you'll find some helpful hints and tips on how they work and updating your MMS settings.

 

 

Face ID

 

Face ID is one of the great new features of the iPhone X – it’s the simple and secure way to unlock your iPhone, authenticate and use Apple Pay, your face is now your password. 

 

The new TrueDepth camera is what enables Face ID to be set up. As it projects and analyses more than 30,000 invisible dots to create a precise depth map of your face.

 

 

Animojis

 

The TrueDepth camera can also analyse over 50 different muscle movements to bring to life 12 different Animojis. Be a sad Panda, a very joyful Fox or even a Unicorn!

 

Animojis also include your voice and can be shared via messages.

 MMS (Picture Messages): How to avoid additional charges

 

If you don’t yet have a picture message add-on, these messages will appear as extra items on top of your regular price plan. To get the best value you can:

 

 

  • You can turn off MMS messages completely by going to:

 

Settings > Messages > MMS Messaging > Toggle Off

 

Note: Disabling MMS messages means you can’t send or receive MMS unless they’re sent via iMessage.
