iOS 15.4 Beta also unlocks Face ID iPhones with masks

iOS 15.4 Beta also unlocks Face ID iPhones with masks


Soon after the release of the final version of iOS 15.3, Apple released the next version of its mobile operating system to the testers.

As expected, after the release of iOS 15.3, Apple released the first beta version for iOS 15.4 (and operating systems such as iPadOS, watchOS and tvOS). Currently Apple only has pre-release access for registered developers, the public beta will be followed today or early next week. After the last round which mainly brought security updates and bug fixes, now there are some new functions again. Or something well-known that Apple introduced in June last year, but has not yet been implemented.

iOS 15.4: New features

Global control

The iPadOS 15.4 beta finally brings Universal Control, which was originally supposed to be released last fall, but was pushed back to the spring of 2022. The drag and drop feature between iPad and Mac (or different Macs) and wireless keyboard and mouse sharing can be found under the Airplay & Handoff tab in the General Options. There you will find a new option called “Cursors and Keyboards (Beta)”.

Facial ID with mask and without Apple Watch

Better late than never, isn’t it? With iOS 14.5, the iPhone can be unlocked with the Apple Watch if the user wears a mask and as a result Face ID does not work. Until now, users without an Apple Watch had to trust an iPhone with a Touch ID.

In the Face ID and Passcode settings, you will find the new Face ID to change the mask. If Face ID is enabled, it will “use unique features around the eye area for recognition” instead of full face recognition. The system also has a new “Add Glasses” system to help you accurately detect your facial features. If the settings are disabled, Apple indicates that Face ID is too accurate. Opening via Face ID on the mask will only work on newer iPhones.

Devices are only supported from iPhone 12. Once we get the beta, we will try the new feature.

Emoji

Recognizing the new series of emojis in Unicode Federation version 14, Apple has now accepted the Federation’s recommendations and introduced a dozen new pictograms. These include melting face, greeting face, lip biting face, glasses, beans, x-rays, bubbles and more. (
