    Dumb question: so by now everyone knows how to unlock the X. But what about locking it? On every other iPhone you press the power button. But on the X, this is for Siri. I can't find it anywhere.

    Anyone know?

    Locking the iPhone X is a simple press of the power button. Activating Siri manually is achieved by holding the power button for 2-3 seconds.

    To me, it was made to sound as soon as you press power, Siri came up.

    Told you it was a dumb question ;)

    I am still not getting what I need. If I press power button once the screen does go dark. If touched again, it shows lock screen, but the padlock sign on top of it is still shown as unlocked. How do I literally lock the devise so it requires either a Face ID or a pin?

    At least this is how it worked for me..

    Siri is summoned by press and hold on the side button. A single press on the side button locks the phone.

    Pushing the power button does lock the phone. Face ID is triggered as soon as the screen turns on and it is unlocking for you. Try having someone else unlock your phone after you turn the display off and see what happens. It should remain locked.

    I am having the same issue. And it is NOT triggered by my Face ID unlocking that as I have that turned off.
