Apple's Next iOS Update Will Make It Easier to Unlock Your iPhone While Wearing a Face Mask

Your requests have been heard.

The latest features of Apple's latest software update, iOS 13.5, have been revealed. Let's just say, your requests have been heard.

According to The Verge, the new update will make it easier for mask wearers to be recognized by Face ID. Yep, you can go straight to password entry. The subtle feature isn't at all a big update, but it's still pretty great news.

After all, you get to skip the frustrating mess that ensues when Face ID can't identify you. Not only that, but it saves time, too. It also helps people by keeping them from touching and removing their masks.

Along with the new feature, Apple is also rolling out some FaceTime updates with iOS 13.5. You'll finally be able to disable the feature that makes the active speaker grow larger in the asymmetric grid. Plus, users can select one participant to be enlarged on the screen.

You won't have to wait long, too. iOS 13.5 is expected to be available in the coming weeks—just in time for the supposed end of the lockdown.
