Agreed, Face ID is very secure and reliable. However, it's not perfect; at least not yet. At times, the facial recognition system fails to identify me even though everything seems to be fine. And when it happens, I find it a bit tedious to trigger the second attempt.
Thankfully, I have a come across a simple yet pretty effective way to unlock iPhone X with Face ID after a failed attempt without having to leave the Lock screen.
Earlier, whenever the Face ID refused to identify my face, I would lock the iPhone and then wake the screen to trigger another Face ID attempt. I was ready to go through this drill once in a while, but when I found the facial recognition system going for a toss a bit more frequently, I wanted to find a more convenient way to invoke the second attempt. And I just stumbled upon it…
How to Unlock iPhone X With Face ID After A Failed Attempt without Leaving the Lock Screen
After a failed attempt, you will be able to quickly invoke the second attempt. When Face ID fails to unlock your device, just slide slightly up and down on the Home Bar that's located right at the bottom of the screen. Then, glance at your device again to unlock with Face ID.
Initially, I found it a bit inconvenient. However, after a few tries, I was able to get a good hang of it, and now I'm able to trigger a second Face ID attempt on my iPhone X comfortably.
That's all folks! Hope this helps.
