Since the Covid-19 pandemic wearing wearing masks was a must, Apple device owners are asking the company to develop a method of using FaceID without removing the screen.

But there is a catch. Not all iPhone users will be able to benefit from this update. In its release notes, Apple has stated that ‘iOS 15.4 adds the ability to unlock with Face ID while wearing the screen on iPhone 12 and newer.’ This means that if you are using an older iPhone model such as the iPhone X, iPhone XR or iPhone 11 series, you will have to remove your screen or punch in the passcode to unlock your Apple device.

Not only does the iPhone unlock, with iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4 updates, Apple users will also be able to use FaceID while using Apple Pay, Safari and during full-automatic passwords in apps. In addition to this, the iOS 15.4 update also brings new emoji features such as hand gestures, and home stuff. Apple says the automated emoji now allows users to select different color tones for each hand.
Apple has also released updates to its virtual subsidiary, Siri, which includes the ability to provide time and date information offline on the iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone 11 or new devices and the inclusion of new content for further integration. In addition, the company has added event permissions for moments, plays, misses, saves, or events recorded in its podcast application, support for adding, removing, or quizzes with Reminders in Shortcuts and the ability to insert passwords saved into notes in the Settings app.
Apple has also updated its SOS emergency system as they use Call with Delay for all users. “Call with 5 dials is also available as an option in emergency SOS programs,” the company said. The company has also released bug fixes for Keyboard, News Widgets, Photos and Live Listen functionality in Control Center.
