Face ID works with a mask on iOS 15.4 Beta, no Apple Watch required

  • One of the newest features recently discovered by Brandon Butch on the latest iOS 15.4 beta is the ability to use partial Face ID that would be useful when wearing a mask, except it no longer requires you to have an Apple Watch connected.
  • Even with a mask, Face ID can be used for Apple Pay, App Store downloads, and third-party apps.
  • You can set up Face ID with or without a mask on and if you opt for the mask-on setup, you don’t have to wear one during setup.
