How to Train iPhone X Face ID to Recognize Different Facial Expressions

  • Face ID can learn minor changes to your face. However, it has some limitations and won’t be able to recognize certain facial changes.
  • It won’t identify your face if you are wearing a scarf, which has completely covered your face.
  • Likewise, it won’t work, if you cover your nose with your hand.

Step #1. First off, raise your device to unlock it with Face ID using a certain expression. For instance, you can close one eye and make a funny expression.

Step #2. Most likely, Face ID may not be able to unlock your iPhone. If it fails to recognize your face, swipe up from the bottom of the locked screen.

Face ID will try to verify your face again when you swipe up. Just in case, the facial recognition fails to identify your face, enter your passcode.
