iOS is accomplished to fulfill certain necessary requirements of iPhone/iPad users. Since we have seen the WWDC18, it looks like the people who are waiting for certain functions are going to be released with iOS 12. Among them, one of the most demandable features was multiple FaceID which you can’t add in iOS 11. However, iOS 12 allows you to do so. Alternate Appearance in Face ID allows multiple Face scans for FaceID or save Two people’s faces. Neither Face With Glasses Not Face with none Glasses.

If you wish to add FaceID for your closest friend or family member for instant unlock then it’s time for you to add their FaceID on your iPhone X. For example, if you want to switch from full beard to clean shaven Face, then you can add another FaceID which is very simple on Apple Phone.
