5 Create an Alternate Sign-In Face
New users may not know it, but Apple has included an “alternate appearance” setting that allows you to add a second face to read for Face ID. Face ID is pretty good at recognizing your face if you have a beard or a different hairstyle, but it can struggle with some things – if you are wearing glasses, a scarf, or a face covering for work purposes, Face ID is more likely to get confused and send you over to the passcode screen.
Alternative appearance can help you get around this problem. Head over to Settings, go to Face ID & Passcode and enter your passcode to make changes. Select Alternate Appearance, and go through the face scan process again, this time with your face that Face ID has a hard time reading. Select Done when you are finished. Now Face ID is more likely to recognize you even if you look a little different.
