The most requested iPhone feature is FINALLY coming

The iPhone is great, as long as you can unlock it. That might sound strange, but as anybody who's tried using Face ID to open their device whilst wearing a face mask will attest, the tech isn't exactly pandemic-proof. But a fix is finally on the way.

Currently in beta, iOS 15.4 lets users use Face ID whilst wearing a mask. Yep, you read that right – one of the best camera phones is now actually useable while wearing the most essential fashion accessory of the last 2 years. No more scrabbling around to enter your password at the supermarket self-checkout.
