Has anyone had any issues with FaceID on the IOS17, it stopped working so I tried to reset it and now it doesn't even work, the actual camera just loss focus and keeps saying lower camera, if I lower it more I will be using my b0110x as FaceID PMSL!!!

Any suggestions :)

I have noticed that Face ID on my iPad Pro is a little fickle. As in, my face needs to be within a certain viewpoint for it to count, while on iOS 16 I could have my head tilted 90 degrees and it would recognize me in a blink (literally). This will probably be fixed on release (i hope :1)

FaceID on PB3 is noticeably slower/less functional on the lock screen, though it seems to work fine for me in apps.

But yeah, I'm mostly unlocking by passcode right now.

Mine is a lot less effective after three update. When unlocking rather than the lock unlocking, I sometimes get the 2 spinniing circles age would have to enter the pass code

Desperate for another update as its not just face ID I'm having issues with. Battery life too is shot. And rather oddly, I seem to have lost heap loads songs from my music library 🤔🤔🤔

I ‘think’ this is related to Attention Awareness, I’ve turned it off and it’s ‘better’ but defo still ropey on the Lock Screen… only really noticed it on beta 5 on my 11pro

I’m also having trouble with it in some apps, most fine, but Discord has been a nightmare and Kraken defaults to passcode even with FaceID on.

Workday also keeps telling my FaceID settings have changed when they haven’t.

I’ll have to try this. My issue is sort of the opposite. I only have the issue in the Lock Screen, but Face ID works perfectly for all apps and stuff.
