In our current environment, full of masks, the joy of using Face ID has been somewhat … reduced. Instead, we must return to the dark age of entering an access code.
Ignore face ID and go to the Enter Passcode screen
Wearing masks when you go out may be unavoidable at the moment, but if you want to make a call or respond to a message quickly, you don’t have to wait for the face identification failure to fail. Instead, you can go directly to the access code screen. When you take your phone out while wearing a mask, instead of waiting for your phone to try to recognize you, you can tap on the screen where it says “Face ID”. This immediately brings up the option “Enter the access code”.
This tip will help you get to your phone a little faster. After all, no one wants to be the person in the queue waving their phone in front of their face while everyone is waiting.
