Unlocking of iPhones using apple’s face ID with your nose mask was made faster through a selectable four or six number passcode when your iPhone detects you are wearing a mask, researches that lead to an upgrade were being made due to the uproar most especially on Twitter.
Apple’s now plans to let you unlock the phone with Face ID while wearing your mask but you would need an Apple to watch or purchase one if you don’t, due to the recent update there is going to be a new IOS 14.5 developer beta that allows you to do that if you’re wearing an unlocked Apple Watch.
HOW THE FEATURE WORKS
- On the IOS 14.5 beta, there will be a manually authorized action by you which enables you to unlock your iPhone with a less accurate Face ID along with your Apple Watch for authentication.
- You will then be notified on your watch every time you unlock your iPhone successfully, which will definitely be annoying due to the notifications if you unlock it frequently.
