How to Unlock an iPhone X While Driving

One of the biggest reasons for road accidents today is the usage of smartphone. Many of us have the habit of unlocking our smartphones while we are driving and a small distraction can prove fatal. Especially, if you have just bought a brand-new Apple iPhone X, you will likely want to unlock your iPhone X while you are driving to listen to music or to text someone or simply to check notifications.

First of all, I would like to be honest upfront by saying that no matter what guide we give you in this article, it is best to avoid using your phone at all costs while driving. Parking your car and then laying hands on the phone is always the best option. But if emergencies call for, then the below tip should help you unlock your iPhone X while driving.

Unlock iPhone X While Driving using a Passcode

It's very ideal to have Face ID unlocking disabled while you are driving so you don't necessarily need to look at your phone to unlock it. You will then have the passcode method to unlock your iPhone X while you are driving your car so you will most likely need to slow down or stop to enter in the code and to use the phone. The following shows how you can do that:

Launch springboard on your iPhone X and tap on the Settings icon to open the settings menu for your phone. Then, tap on the option that says Face ID & Password to open the Face ID settings menu. You may be asked to enter your passcode before you can access the settings panel. On the following screen, find and disable the option that says iPhone Unlock.

The Face ID unlock feature should now be disabled on your iPhone X and you will now be asked to enter in a passcode to unlock your iPhone X while you are driving or doing anything else.

Another major distraction especially while driving is your phone becoming unresponsive or getting stuck or doesn't work as it was supposed to. Nobody wants this to happen especially on premium phones from brands like Apple. If you keep on facing these issues, then it is necessary to rely on third-party apps to solve these problems.

Resolve iPhone Stuck Issues with an App

There's a nice little app called Tenorshare ReiBoot that helps iOS users resolve many issues they might be facing on their devices. The app works even with the latest iPhone X and helps you fix many of the issues such as stuck apple logo, recovery mode, DFU mode, black screen and more. If you are running into an iPhone X stuck problem, just download this iOS system recovery software to repair it.
