iPhone users can now skip Face ID when wearing a mask
Apple brings the passcode interface to the unlock screen
To remedy that, the new update allows users to get to the passcode field directly by swiping up from the bottom of the Home screen.
This way, you will not be tempted to remove your face mask, which could be risky, just to get your iPhone to recognize you.
Moreover, it will also now be possible to authenticate purchases with your passcode on apps which were previously set up to map faces for verification purposes.
Although this new protocol is currently available to beta users only, it will likely be widely available when iOS 13.5 is rolled out to the masses in the coming weeks.
The new beta which was seeded to developers also has a toggle that can allow them to enable coronavirus exposure notifications.
