Apple made it easier to unlock iPhone with Face ID when wearing a face mask

The coronavirus epidemic that has spread throughout the world has forced many of us to wear face masks when we leave our homes. And, as you know, modern face scanners are not able to recognize the face of the owner under the mask. This also applies to the Face ID system on the iPhone. Owners of iPhone with Face ID have repeatedly complained about problems with access to a smartphone because of a worn mask. And it seems Apple heard them.

        IOS 13.5 beta 4 released: what's new?

In the new beta version of iOS 13.5 for developers, which was released on Wednesday evening, Apple solved the problem of accessing the iPhone with Face ID when wearing a mask. Now, when you swipe up on the main screen of a locked iPhone, you will immediately see a window for entering a passcode to unlock if the system sees that your face is covered with a protective mask. Earlier, we recall that the iPhone first tried to recognize the masked face and only after several unsuccessful attempts to identify it called the password-code input interface. This created a few seconds of delay, which led to inconvenience, especially when you need to quickly unlock the smartphone. A new password entry method allows you to log in faster.
