How To Quickly Unlock Your iPhone While Wearing A Mask

With iOS 13.5, Apple has modified Face ID to better recognize when your face is obstructed by an object like a mask.

With these modifications, your iPhone will now jump immediately to the passcode screen when you swipe up instead of waiting several seconds for Face ID to try and recognize you.

  • When you’re wearing a mask, swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen while holding it as you would unlock it using Face ID. Your iPhone should jump immediately to the passcode screen.
  • Enter your passcode.

How To Use Your Passcode Instead Of Face ID To Unlock Your iPhone

If you want to access the passcode screen without looking at your iPhone (for example, when you’re bringing it out of your pocket or bag), that’s also an option.

  • Swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen while you’re not looking at it.
  • Then, tap Face ID in the middle of the screen.
  • Enter your passcode.
