    No one here can answer that. The only people who know "what they have done" is Apple.

    Fine for me - same great speed as before

    Also I have learned from many IOS updates you need to wait a day or so to see what real performance is

    Slower here too on my XS. I could pickup and swipe and be in with no unlock animation. Now I see the padlock.

    I for one when I huge update comes out, well all of them I do Icloud backup and then I fully RESTORE my phone and it will download and install the Whole 12.1 file and not just pieces--you get a much better install that way! So if you updated OTA then I would suggest Wipe it clean and do a fresh install!!

    You are not the only one, they added a delay after the lock get unlocked. Not sure if it was intended or just another bug as always...

    There's no proof that this method is any better than updating OTA. I've done nothing but OTA updates over the past several years and my phone is great.

    I wish people would stop propagating baseless "facts" around here.

    Just reset face ID and retrained it and the results are the same.

    Tried attention awareness off and on as well (I usually have it off as it doesn't like my mirrored ray bans)

    Sometimes I can pickup and it will unlock without finishing the animation like before but more often than not it will show the full animation.

    Much slower as in a few more milliseconds or like a full second? You're not waiting like 4-5 seconds before the phone unlocks are you?

    Maybe they slowed it down on purpose on the iPhone X to make their claims that the XS and XS Max have faster FaceID more prominent.. I hope that’s not the case and this is just a bug
