New Feature in iOS 15.4 Lets You Use Face ID While Wearing a Mask

KAJAL THARWANI

30th Mar'22

Face ID will work while wearing a mask. Do you find it funny? No way! I am not joking. It is true! With iOS 15.4, you can now unlock your iPhone’s Face ID even while wearing a mask.  However, the competence is limited to the iPhone 12 and newer devices. The company has also updated the long-awaited Universal Control. Let’s understand a bit about the new feature, Universal Control, and how to use the unlock feature on the iPhones. 

 

Statement from Apple     

According to Apple, “ The feature scans unique features around the eye area to be authentic,” though it does warn that Face ID works best when the entire face is visible. However, users do not need to wear a mask while setting up Face ID.

Not only facial recognition with a mask, but Apple is also improving Face ID with glasses. The company further explains, “ Using Face ID while wearing a mask works best when it’s set up to recognize each pair of glasses you wear regularly.” Face ID with mask doesn’t support sunglasses.

The company also says, “ Face ID is most accurate when it’s set up for full-face recognition only. To use Face ID while wearing a mask,iPhone can recognize the unique features around the eye to authenticate.”

 

How to Set up Face ID    

Here are the steps you must follow to set up a face ID on Apple iPhone to work with face masks. Remember, the update is around 12.5 GB, so make sure you have access to Wifi while installing. 

  • Make sure your iPhone has iOS 15.4.

  • Open settings, tap Face ID and Password.

  • Scroll down and turn Face ID with a mask.

  • Tab Use Face ID with a Mask

  • Follow the on-screen instructions to set up a face ID.

 

Apple's new feature

 

What does iOS 15.4 Update Bring? 

The update does not only bring the feature of face ID, but it comes with a lot more. Don’t worry, I am here to tell you.

 

Face ID

As I told you already, the new feature has the option of Face ID that you can access by updating your iPhone. You will also be able to access Apple Pay and password autofill with your Face ID while wearing a mask. 

The capability is limited to newer devices, which include the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini,iPhone 12 Pro, Pro Max, and the latest iPhone 13 lineup. The remaining users have to remove their masks to unlock the device. 

 

Emoji 

The update also brings new emoticons that include face gestures, hand gestures, and household objects to the keyboard. Moreover, the handshake emoji is now available in separate skin tones for each hand. 

 

Siri 

Siri is the best friend of iPhone users! Siri can now provide time and date information while offline on iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, and the newer iPhones. 

 

Vaccination Cards 

COVID-19 has made it compulsory to show your vaccination certificate everywhere. The Digital Covid Certificate support in the Health app enables you to download and store verifiable versions of your COVID-19 vaccination, test results, and recovery records. The vaccination cards in Apple Wallet will now sport the EU COVID Certificate format. 

 

Other Features 

The other features include support for Italian and Chinese in Safari web page translation and FaceTime updates. Even the Podcasts app now adds episode filters for seasons as played, unplayed, saved and downloaded episodes. Moreover, the shortcuts now support adding, removing, and querying tags with reminders.

The update has also fixed issues like the Speak Screen Accessibility feature quitting unexpectedly within the Book app and the Live Listen feature not turning off when switched off in the Control Center.

 

iOS new feature

 

What is Universal Control?

Universal Control is a feature in the iPhone that lets you use other Apple devices as a second screen. The feature was initially announced as part of macOS Monetary but was delayed. By the time, it became part of the iOS 15.4 beta and launched as a public beta, with the Monterey OS 12.4 and iPadOS 15.4 updates. 

As Universal Control is still in beta, it is expected to run with some issues. According to Apple, Universal Control is available on:

  • MacBook Pro ( 2016 and later)

  • MacBook (2016 and later)

  • MacBook ( 2018 and later) 

  • iMac ( 2017 and later)

  • Mac Pro ( 2019)

  • iMac Pro 

  • Mac Mini ( 2018 and later) 

  • iPad Air ( third generation and later)

  • iPad ( sixth generation and later)

  • iPad Mini ( fifth generation and later) 

 

Conclusion 

Apple is constantly updating with new trends and technologies, it is also about to launch a mixed reality device. It makes Apple the consumer's first choice and safe to use smartphone. Apple always tries to be the first and most updated in the market.  The new feature has all the updates users have been asking for from the company for a very long time.

BITCOIN RECOVERY IS REAL!!! ( MorrisGray830 At gmail Dot Com, is the man for the job ) This man is dedicated to his work and you can trust him more than yourself. I contacted him a year and a half Ago and he didn't succeed. when i got ripped of $491,000 worth of bitcoins by scammers, I tried several recovery programs with no success too. I kept on. And now after so much time Mr Morris Gray contacted me with a success, and the reward he took was small because obviously he is doing this because he wants to help idiots like me who fell for crypto scam, and love his job. Of course he could have taken all the coins and not tell me , I was not syncing this wallet for a year, but he didn't. He is the MAN guys , He is! If you have been a victim of crypto scam before you can trust Morris Gray 10000000%. I thought there were no such good genuine guys anymore on earth, but Mr Morris Gray brought my trust to humanity again. GOD bless you sir...you can reach him via ( MORRIS GRAY 830 at Gmaill dot com ) or Whatsapp +1 (607)698-0239..

My name is Diego Lopez. I was scammed of USD459,800 by this mining pool. I wanted to withdraw USD100,000 from my account. They asked for 5% tax to be paid to the Hong Kong Tax Bureau so I sent them USD22,990. But they came back saying since I am at the VIP stage (funds of USD200,000 or more), I am allowed to withdraw a minimum of USD200,000 only, nothing less. So I sent them an additional USD20,000 promising to send another USD15,200 for extra charges. However, after sending the additional funds of USD15,200, I never got any reply. Never heard from them since. Luckily for me I started searching online for a possible way to get my money back. Then I found a recovery company called “Backend Recover". I contacted them and explained in detail how I lost my money. Finally they helped me recover my money back and I am happy again. If you have ever lost your money online to your broker or whatever online scheme, be it binary or crypto currency trading, dating, loan scams, lottery or whatever, there is a solution for you this is my testimony. You can contact them on (backendrecover@rescueteam.com) for more information on how to recover your funds.
