Question: Does the iPhone X have a proximity sensor

Does the iPhone X have a proximity sensor?


Mine doesn't blank when I cover the top notch, put it in my pocket, or hold it to my face. Is the proximity sensor not functioning, or isn't there one?

iPhone X, iOS 11.1

Answer:

No, it doesn't blank when you're not in a call. That's the way it's always worked.

The Proximity sensor only activates when you are on a call. When the phone is not on a call, the proximity sensor is not active as there would be many instances when turning off the screen due to it being covered up would not be functional.

My iphone happens the same thing. For it to light up during a call, I need to push the side button twice. After this it normally works the sensor.

Weird. It already opens a call in the applecare and they asked me to restore the factory default. I have not had time to do that yet.
