But there is another technique that can be used to speed up facial identification, this can be done using a secondary scan.

Adding an additional user or scanning it in Face ID
Starting with iOS 12, it became possible to add an additional user to Face ID. This function is mainly used to add another look to your face (for example, with a beard), but nothing prevents you from scanning and adding the face of your loved one. If you want the face recognition feature to work faster, add a second scan for face recognition. But when adding, consider the following.

How to set up Face ID for quick work
1. Open the application “Settings”.
2. Select Face ID and Password and enter the password code.
3. Click on “Alternative appearance”.
4. Select Proceed.
Now look directly at the camera to activate the scan. Once the circle is active, lower your iPhone to chest height. Point the camera at an angle of about 45 degrees to the face and try to keep your head straight. So the device will scan the lower part of the face. Now look at the camera, but only with your eyes, without turning your head. Then lower your head down to scan your face from there. Make a circular motion with the head so that the chin touches the middle of the chest. Repeat this again for the second scan and finish setting up Face ID.

Faster Face Recognition
This trick will add an additional scan to Face ID, which will allow you to quickly recognize your face in the future. The thing is that Face ID scanned your face both front and bottom. This is convenient if the device is located below face level and you cannot look directly at the camera. This setting will allow Face ID to better scan your face when the smartphone is on the table, or you picked it up while walking.
