Unlike the old Touch ID, Face ID in modern iPhones doesn’t work when wearing a mask, but things have changed with iOS 15.4.
Prior to iOS 15.4, if any Apple Watch, users can unlock their iPhone while wearing a mask, but the problem is that Apple Pay still doesn’t work. Users still need to remove the mask or use a password to log in.
Two years on from the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, Apple has finally fixed this issue in iOS 15.4. The latest version of iOS allows users to set up Face ID to work anywhere, including Apple Pay, while wearing a mask.
How to set up Face ID when wearing a mask
Before we start, it’s important to note that Face ID doesn’t work with masks on all iPhones. To use Face ID when wearing a mask and without an Apple Watch, users need an iPhone 12 or later. Additionally, they need to update their device to iOS 15.4 or later.
Turning on Face ID while wearing a mask is a simple, no-frills process that requires users to lightly tap an on/off button in Settings. In addition, users need to set up Face ID again so that the iPhone can recognize the unique features around the eye area.
– Open the Settings app and go to the Face ID & Passcode section.
– Turn on the option Face ID with a Mask.
– Click Use Face ID with a Mask.
– Click Get Started to set up Face ID.
– Follow the on-screen procedure to complete the process. Note that users do not need to wear a mask when setting up Face ID.
– If wearing glasses, tap Add Glasses and follow the on-screen instructions. Note: This will not work with sunglasses.
That’s how you set up Face ID to work with Apple Pay and unlock your iPhone. Now, users can safely wear a mask and use all the security features Face ID has to offer.
