Can’t Unlock Your iPhone’s Face ID with a Mask On? Here’s The Solution

Apple’s Solution to Unlocking iPhone With Mask on Face

Are you an iPhone owner? If yes, then this article may bring a sigh of relief for you. I know you might be annoyed with Apple’s Face ID, but it has been sorted out to a certain level by the developers. Developers tweeted about the updates in the Apple Developer Program and, during the release of iOS 13.5, told that now if you try to unlock iPhone with Face ID, it will go straight to passcode option. It’s a beta version for now, which will be very handy for iPhone users in the situation of a covid-19 pandemic.

Are you facing Face ID unlock problems? Apple brings Solution for it

Apple’s solution to the problem of unlocking with masks on the face came quickly, but for now, it is not a full-proof solution, and they need to work on it later. For the time being, the problem arising for iPhone users has been solved to some extent.

If Face ID isn’t working on your iPhone or iPad Pro- Click to find the solution

Previously, if your Face ID is enabled, software used to wait for the face scan to fail and then prompted for the passcode option on the second screen. Now, in the beta version of iOS 13.5 when the user tries to unlock their iPhone, it provides an opportunity of passcode along with the Face scanning at the same moment on the same screen as well.

Another exciting feature in the beta version is that if FaceID detects mask on your face, it will directly give you the option of the passcode, otherwise Face ID will work usually.

Does iPhone’s Face ID screw you? If yes, then do consider removing Face ID for a while from your mobile and use a passcode to unlock your phone. Developers need to tweak with software as early as possible, till then wait for the new iOS update for masks.
