Here is how to get a Face ID feature on any iPhone without upgrading to the latest iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max or the iPhone XR. If your device is Jailbroken, follow these steps, if not here is how to Jailbreak iOS 12.0 – 12.1.2.
Face ID is a really great feature that Apple integrated into the newer iPhone and iPad in replacement of the Touch ID that allows users to unlock their device with their face. And now you will be able to do the same on your older iPhone models like iPhone 5S and higher without having to pay $999 for the X model.
There is a new Tweak available in Cydia called “Appellancy (iOS 11)” which adds the Face ID feature to the older iPhone models. All you need to do is install the tweak, take some pictures of yours and done! The next time you unlock your device, it will be unlocking with the help of Face ID.
