Apple is testing out a feature to fix a problem that’s become commonplace these days – unlocking your iPhone while wearing a face mask.
Since iPhone users face difficulties in unlocking their phones using facial recognition feature with partially hidden faces, they have resorted to using passcodes to enter their phones, but Apple has a solution
The new feature being tested requires an Apple watch as it lets an iPhone communicate with a synced watch when the phone is raised to use facial recognition.
Once the feature is rolled out for the public, it will allow iPhone to automatically unlock and the watch will vibrate.
Apple expects to public the feature soon.
