    my friend has contacts and without them in FaceID wont work. I asked him if they were colored and they are. So colored contacts are a no go. Makes sense though.

    That does not make sense. It is not a retina scanner. But anyway, if he finds it an issue he can change the attentiveness settings: his eyes don’t even have to be open or looking at the screen to use Face ID.

    Sounds like your friend need to go through the setup process again.

    Your eyes do have to be open. Apple stated that.

    So someone can turn your phone on when you’re asleep or better yet...dead!

    You can disable "Require attention" in face ID settings.

    No, they don’t. As I said you can disable that in settings.

    Easy fix -- turn off "require attention for face ID" in faceID & passcode settings. Don't see the point of it anyway. Now faceid works with my sunglasses on (before it wouldn't).
