    I constantly see 2 red lights left to the microphone inside the notch of the iPhone X flickering once every 2-3 seconds. What is this and why is it doing that?

    That is part of the FaceID tech - always ready to scan.

    So how do you turn it off then? I’m sure it doesn’t need to do that when not asked to.

    One of the things that seems a bit off about FaceID to me - it should only be engaged when you're going to use it. I'm not sure about the lasting impact of a focused beam of IR hitting your aqueous humour/ vitreous humour and cornea, retina etc on a regular basis either...

    I've never seen 2 red lights and my Face ID works great---

    You can see the LEDs if you take a picture of your iPhone X.

    Found this:
    You can also turn off FaceID by pressing the side buttons to get the shutdown screen, then canceling that shutdown. FaceID will be off then.

    Perhaps you have the limited edition KITT version?

    It just the Face ID sensors. Most people can only see them in low-light rooms (when its dark), with the display brightness is minimal. Pretty sure you only should be seeing it when on lock screen when the iPhone X is waiting to see the presence of a face to unlock it.
