Face ID is an innovative feature that uses facial recognition to unlock your smartphone. It was first introduced with iPhone X and replaces Touch ID. Face ID is only available on iPhone X, so older model owners cannot use it.
Fortunately, there is now a way to use Face ID on anyone iPhone. This is possible thanks to the Appellancy jailbreak app, which simulates Face ID on older models iPhone. With this application you can unlock your smartphone with your face.
Below we will show you how to use the Appellancy app on iPhone with iOS 11.
