Especially now, when wearing a mask or a cloth over the mouth and nose is more common, it is particularly annoying to wait for the unlock attempt. So if you already know that your iPhone will not be unlocked by face recognition, you might want to shorten the route ... This is exactly what the following instructions are intended for. With a little trick you can enter your PIN or unlock code without having to wait for a failed Face ID attempt;)
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:
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; )
