This might alleviate some annoyance the next time you’re out in public.
The latest software update from Apple allows users to open their phone with Face ID while wearing a mask.
If you have an iPhone, you’ve probably noticed Face ID doesn’t work while wearing a mask or face covering.
Now, Apple’s IOS Beta 15.4 update uses the function to identify the top portion of a user’s face to unlock their phone, according to TechCrunch.
But, it’s only available on iPhone 12s or newer.

Because the feature only uses half of a user’s face, it could potentially be less secure, which is why Apple is also allowing people to opt-in or out to use it.
Are you glad the Face ID/mask option is now available? Will you use it?
