Touch ID is a better option to unlock the iOS devices compared to the Passcode. It was an old tradition of using the passcodes to unlock iPhones on iOS but it’s still there after the arrival of Face ID. Of course, you can unlock an iPhone or iPad if you remember the passcode you have arranged for it. But it will be a difficult task if you have not remembered the passcode.
