Unlocking an iPhone X takes 3 steps to accomplish the task. First, you have to either raise to wake or tap on the screen to wake the iPhone X, then glance at it, and finally swipe up from the bottom of the screen to unlock it when the lock icon animates from the closed state to open.
Many iPhone X users find the third step that involves swiping up from the bottom of the screen to unlock the phone, unnecessary. If you are one such user, then a Cydia tweak called FaceUnlockX is for you.
Once you have installed FaceUnlockX on your jailbroken iPhone, the tweak will skip the third step of swiping up from the bottom of the screen to unlock the device. Your iPhone X should unlock automatically after you attentively look at it.
Please keep in mind that the jailbreak tweak won’t be able to automatically unlock iPhone X when the Music is playing or when there are notifications on the Lock screen. This makes perfect sense as it allows you to use playback controls while the music is being played or read notifications.
Unlocking iPhone X at a glance is more of a personal preference. But, if you find it more convenient then you can try FaceUnlockX. It has become one of the few jailbreak tweaks available for Apple’s latest smartphone iPhone X. Other popular jailbreak tweaks available for iPhone X include BatteryPercentX and BioProtect X.
