Apple tests iPhone face unlocking that works with a mask

0

Apple is working on new software that will recognize iPhone users even with a facemask.

The new software would work with its Face ID security tool, which uses facial recognition to unlock a user’s phone.

The current update gives the user a passcode prompt if you’re wearing a mask – but the new update will let the phone sync with an Apple Watch to unlock.

Beta testing for the feature will begin soon.
