1 Retry Face ID with Just a Swipe
We’ve all had that moment when Face ID didn’t recognize us. Maybe we were too close or too far, maybe the sun was washing out our face, or maybe the camera was pointed at the ceiling. In iOS 11 you’d be prompted for a passcode. You could reinitiate the scan by turning the display off and back on, or by swiping up from the bottom and back down (sometimes this worked), or by lowering and raising the device again; but, all of these options were slow, unreliable, and unintuitive.
iOS 12 fixes this by allowing users to simply swipe up to rescan when prompted for a password. That’s it. So now when you’re yawning and your phone prompts for a password, just swipe up. Or, if you yawn a lot, consider setting up a yawning alternate appearance.
