Anyway to make Face ID work very close to your face?

    I was thinking maybe on the second scan to hold it close to my face, but my face would overflow the circle in that case while setting it up. I am nearsighted and sometimes in bed I take off my glasses and hold it closer to my head.

    Anyone with any suggestions? Is it even possible?

    I have the same issue. Face ID is really inconvenient comparing with Touch ID when I don't wear my glasses. In fact, since I usually use my phone relatively close to my face even if I'm wearing glasses, I really have to pay attention not being too close to the phone every time when unlocking the phone, which is quite annoying.

    TouchID had to be very close to my finger...

    I think I found a solution...
    ..and enable Bold Text.
    This prevents me being too close to the phone:)
