According to recent reports from 9to5Mac, iOS 12 beta comes with the support of an Alternative Appearance in the Face ID Settings. Unlike other security locks like the fingerprint, which supports different fingerprints, Face ID had been restricted to a single person until now. The iOS 12 feature is clearly designed to recognize a different appearance (possibly for hats, etc.), testers have found it works on an entirely different face.
9to5Mac says that this feature could be related to an iPad with Face ID that’s also referenced in the iOS 12 beta. Several reports have suggested Apple is working on a new iPad with Face ID and no home button for later this year. An additional face for Face ID might be useful for a new iPad, but it’s also a feature that many iPhone X users would likely want to see, too. Multiple faces support for Face ID is particularly useful if you share a device with a family member or for potential new iPads in an educational environment.
