Face ID is a wonderful means of user authentication for iPhones and iPads, but one complaint I have is how the Face ID authentication animation takes so much longer than it should, sometimes making it feel like I spend more time looking at flashy animations than I do getting things done.
If you’re tired of how long it takes for the Face ID authentication animation to finish before you can finally get back to your business, then you may find a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed QuickDismissFaceID by iOS developer udevs to be useful.
QuickDismissFaceID doesn’t make the Face ID hardware itself any faster at recognizing your face, but rather trims a discernible number of milliseconds from the Face ID authentication animation after Face ID successfully authenticates your face. In other words, you won’t have to wait as long, especially after the likes of a failed authentication attempt.
While I admit that I’m literally splitting hairs with my complaint regarding Face ID and how long it takes for the animation to complete, QuickDismissFaceID effectively resolves my complaint. Having said that, anyone with a similar issue will come to appreciate what this tweak does. With no options to configure, merely installing the tweak is all you have to do to reap the benefits.
If you’re interested in trying QuickDismissFaceID out for yourself, then you can download it for free from udevs’ personal repository via your favorite package manager app. The change is something that you really have to see to believe, and the tweak supports jailbroken iPhones and iPads that offer Face ID capabilities and are running iOS or iPadOS 14.
Those not already taking full advantage of udevs’ personal repository can add it to their preferred package manager app by using the URL provided below:
