Use the secure connection to your Apple Watch for Siri requests or to unlock your iPhone when an obstruction, like a mask, prevents Face ID from recognizing your Face. Your watch must be passcode protected, unlocked, and on your wrist close by," says Apple in the Face ID and Passcode menu of Settings. Notice something new?"
Yep, besides unlocking your iPhone without Face ID having to scan your face, you will now be able to bark questions or stake demands before Apple's virtual assistant Siri without a confirmation, like the one requested to change something in Settings, for instance. Heck, your iPhone can now be in your pocket, and still be asked to read messages out loud, though we doubt the muffled sound will be any good with ambient noise around.
