iOS 12 is one of the biggest announcement happened at WWDC 2018. with respect to iOS 11, iOS 12 brings in a lot of improvements with respect to UI stability, performance, and other features. However, one feature, which was not introduced on the WWD conference is this nifty feature, which is one of the most requested features on the Apple iPhone X.
Until the launch of the iPhone X, most of the iPhones (from iPhone 5s to iPhone 8 Plus) had a touch ID based on a fingerprint sensor, where a user can register up to 5 different fingerprint scanners to unlock the smartphone. However, this changed with the iPhone X, which came with Face ID instead of Touch ID, where a user can only register a single face. Apple clarified that, if they allow more than one face to register, then it will be a security breach.
With the iOS 12, iPhone X users can register 2 Faces, which can be used to unlock the iPhone X, which is also said to be the securest way to unlock a smartphone compared to the fingerprint sensor. As the stable version of the iOS 12 is still due at least for few more months, the feature is already available on the beta version of the iOS 12.
