Apple is going to solve the problem of unlock with Face ID when wearing the mask: in the beta 1 of iOS 15.4 comes the ability to authenticate without removing it. Until now, Apple had solved the problem by unlocking with Apple Watch, but those without it had to use the code.

Face ID even with the mask: the beta 1 of iOS 15.4 arrives

Apple has introduced in the new beta 1 of iOS 15.4 a feature that allows Face ID to recognize the “unique features around the eye”To unlock the smartphone safely, even with the bezel.
