Apple may ditch Face ID in iPhone 13

New ‘Shot on iPhone’ video has a Chinese new year theme

She said, via Twitter, that the new feature lets users "unlock iPhone with Apple Watch while wearing a mask".

Touch ID is still in use on the 2020 iPhone SE, as well as the iPad and MacBooks. Which, for those of us living in the northern half of the country is something we do pretty regularly during long stretches of the calendar. This addition will be alongside the iPhone's proprietary Face ID, which makes use of a neural sensor and 3D scanner to map people's faces.

But don't get too excited - the report points out that it won't work for other features that require Face ID, such as approving App Store purchases. You can find this setting by opening up the Settings app, going to the Face ID & Passcode section, entering your passcode, and then toggling on "Unlock with Apple Watch". It doesn't work when your authentication device is covered. Plus, the ability to unlock an iPhone while wearing a face mask via the Apple Watch must be enabled manually.

A little over a month later, Apple released iOS 13.5, which allowed users to skip Face ID completely and jump straight into entering their passcode if the phone detected they were wearing a mask.

Founder Green has also had a hard few years after he was criticized for the sale and subsequent collapse of BHS department stores. It comes after Boohoo - set up only 15 years ago - acquired the Debenhams brand, but not its stores in a £55m deal.

While the beta for iOS 14.5 has been released, no official release date for the upcoming software changes has been revealed at this time. It works with Apple Watch and AirPods, or other Bluetooth headphones. That means it doesn't require any interaction to confirm that you wanted to unlock your device. "If you are wearing a mask and have an unlocked Apple Watch on your wrist, you can unlock FaceID on your iPhone".

It's also not as easy as simply swiping up on your lock screen. Notwithstanding the inclusion of the in-display fingerprint sensor, Apple will retain the Face ID especially because it facilitates various AR features such as Memojis.

As noted, this feature is now only available to developers on the iOS and watchOS betas, but as such will make its way to the public in the future. However, an iPhone and Apple Watch need to be close to each for the unlocking and locking issue to get sorted.

I tried it out for a while today, to the amusement of my children who think it's amusing that dad is wearing a mask around the house, and it worked reliably every time. This could be accomplished through the use of Machine Learning to help analyze users' spending and determine what, if any, steps could be taken to improve the user's financial situation. The wearable "must be nearby, on your wrist, unlocked, and protected by a passcode".
