The iOS 15.4 update now available on iPhones includes a feature that many have been asking for since the beginning of the pandemic: The ability to unlock your phone using facial recognition software while wearing a mask.
Here’s how to install it (according to CNET):
  •     Install the iOS 15.4 update.
  •     Open Settings.
  •     Tap Face ID & Passcode
  •     Toggle the option to turn on Face ID with a Mask.
  •     Scan your face (you don’t need to wear a mask for setup).
Other advancements at Apple were laid out during their Peek Performance early this month.
