I set up my IP X without face ID....I will never use that nonsense, come hell or high-water. Did you hear that Timmy? NEVER.

But now I have that awful red circled 1 and periodic notifications that say you have not set up face id.

Plus, when i enter my numeric password it will accept it the first time and then refuse to unlock...so i have to key it in once more.

The whole thing seems to be to frustrate and browbeat hold outers like me into adopting face id.

Well, Timmy, it's on....lets see who blinks first...aint' gonna be me.

Hic!

I don't care about FaceID or passcodes, don't use either on my phone as I have nothing of value stored on it. But you can set up FaceID then just disable it. That will prevent you from getting any more reminders about setting it up. That's what I did.

This was not nearly (read:not at all) as funny as you think it is. You bought the phone, they will win in the end.

Boy, you sure told him. I'm sure he won't sleep tonight now.

Ok, I’m going to guess that the “Hic!” at the end of your post means that you were drunk posting.

Just trying to give you an out since, like another poster stated, you already paid for the phone and Timmy doesn’t know you... but, ummm, enjoy your X?

I think it's ridiculous that your phone keeps reminding you to set up FaceID. I don't have an iPhone X so I don't know what you're dealing with. It's YOUR choice not to use FaceID, so it shouldn't be forced upon you.

I still don't use passwords or fingerprints on my phones, and I'm not sure I'd use FaceID either to be honest. I'd definitely be annoyed if my phone tried to remind me constantly.

It's not forced on you. I set up mine and then disabled it immediately. No more reminders.

So you purchased an iPhone X with no intent of using Face ID and you want to let others know about it on a tech forum? What exactly did you accomplish here? You seem to be rather confused than you are actually making a valid point. The CEO of a billion dollar company is not interested in your iPhone, let alone this thread.
