Unlock iPhone with PIN without waiting for Face ID

The trick to unlocking the iPhone with a PIN without having to wait for the Face ID error is something for those of you with quick fingers. If you are in a hurry, you can either take the iPhone out of your pocket, from the table or leave it where it is - because the process works under all circumstances. And these simple steps are necessary:

  1. Pick up or tap the iPhone to "wake it up"
  2. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen
  3. While the recognition attempt is running, tap "Face ID" in the middle of the screen
  4. Enter the PIN and use it to unlock the iPhone
  5. Without having to wait for the Face ID error to use the iPhone

Admittedly, the time savings are not very great. But that should be logical with a feature that otherwise works as quickly as Face ID. Depending on the iPhone model and iOS version, you won't gain more than two or three seconds. But if it really matters or your Apple smartphone should take an unusually long time to query the illegible face data, you now know what to do: simply tap on the "Face ID" lettering and then enter the unlock code; )
