Is FaceID better on the iPhone 11 Pro?

If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know I’ve had a love/hate relationship with FaceID since the iPhone X. I’ve had the same frustrations with both the X and XS models but suddenly realised it hadn’t been an annoyance on the iPhone 11 Pro.

I’ve been using my phone in the same way as I did my previous ones and it’s been unlocking first time for me on more occasions. It seems I can hold it further away from my face than previous models and it unlocks fine.

Where I still struggle with is sunglasses outside in bright sunlight. I wear Oakley sunglasses with reflective lenses so all I can think is that there is too much sunlight obscuring the IR sensor to work.

In my opinion FaceID has improved with the iPhone 11 line but still has issues in bright sunlight.

What’s your experience been like?
