iOS 17: How to enable the “iPhone is too close” feature

2023-09-11 21:41:30

With iOS 17, Apple cares a little more about your health, and more particularly your visual health. The “Screen Distance” function encourages you to move the screen away if it is considered too close to your face.

This Tuesday, Apple will lift the veil on the new iPhone 15. Terminals which will carry iOS 17 by default, Apple’s new flagship operating system, unveiled at WWDC in June and in the beta testing phase since then. Several important features were then unveiled by Apple, but not only that. Others have slipped through the cracks, like the one we are going to present to you in this article.

A function inherited from the “Screen Time” menu, the eye display distance has one and only one mission: to reduce the risk that you or your child develops an eye pathology, such as myopia or astigmatism. A laudable intention on the part of Apple, which therefore designed this functionality for the well-being of its customers.

Concretely, the function is very simple. Thanks to your iPhone’s TrueDepth sensor, it will be able to calculate how far your face is from the screen. If it is less than 30 cm, then the iPhone will “hang” with a pop-up window inviting, or rather forcing, you to move back.

To activate the function, nothing could be simpler. Go to the settings of your iPhone, then into the menu Screen time. You will find, in the second box, the new function Screen distance. By pressing it, you will find yourself in front of a check mark to activate. When you hold your iPhone within 30 cm of your face, the message will appear constantly.
