Earlier this month, Apple launched the iPhone X in India. The smartphone has since then been in high demand. Apart from its unique design, Face ID is one feature that sets it apart from other phones. The new feature not only lets users unlock their device but it authenticates Apple Pay transactions for them. While the Face ID has raised lots of security questions, there is one interesting trick that Face ID can perform, and you may have missed it.

According to a Reddit user deathbyitaliano, the iPhone X acts smartly and lowers the volume on the alarm once Face ID sees your face. “Woke up this morning to my iPhone alarm and when I looked at my X, I noticed the volume lowered itself. I tried this again to make sure I wasn’t just imagining it after waking up, and it does! That is such a little thing that didn’t need to be a feature, but the fact that it is, is amazing. Now when I wake up and look at my phone its a softer volume instead of continually blaring the alarm at me. Little things like these are awesome.” Also Read - Apple Music Lossless, Spatial Audio features with Dolby Atmos coming soon to India

Face ID uses neural networks that detect physical changes in your appearance. Face ID blasts your face with the invisible infrared light that’s commonly used for night vision, which lets Face ID pick up your face even in poorly lit conditions.
To recap on the specification front, the iPhone X flaunts a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED screen with a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels and a density of 458ppi. Under the hood is an A11 Bionic 64-bit chipset paired with an M11 motion co-processor.
There is a dual-camera setup at the back with a combination of a 12-megapixel wide-angle snapper with f/1.8 aperture, and a 12-megapixel telephoto snapper with f/2.4 aperture. Up front is a 7-megapixel camera with Portrait Mode. The rest of the features include water and dust resistance, and a battery that is said to last up to two hours more than the iPhone 7.
