• If you didn’t set up Face ID when you first set up your iPad, go to Settings  > Face ID & Passcode > Set up Face ID, then follow the onscreen instructions.
  • To set up an additional appearance for Face ID to recognize, go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode > Set Up an Alternate Appearance, then follow the onscreen instructions.The Face ID recognition setup screen. A face is showing on the screen, enclosed in a circle. Text below that instructs you to move your head slowly to complete the circle.

If you have physical limitations, you can tap Accessibility Options during Face ID set up. When you do this, setting up facial recognition doesn’t require the full range of head motion. Using Face ID is still secure, but it requires more consistency in how you look at iPad.

Face ID also has an accessibility feature you can use if you’re blind or have low vision. If you don’t want Face ID to require that you look at iPad with your eyes open, go to Settings > Accessibility > Face ID & Attention, then turn off Require Attention for Face ID. This feature is automatically turned off if you turn on VoiceOver when you first set up iPad. See Change Face ID and attention settings on iPad.
