Unlock your iPhone while your masks are on:
With Covid-19 outbreak and with lockdown almost everywhere in the world, the government across the world has imposed few strict and mandatory rules. One of the major rule is that if any person is stepping out of his/her house because of some emergency then that person needs to wear face masks, as a part of safety measure. However, people with iPhone are facing bit of problem in unlocking their phone while wearing face masks. The iPhone’s Face ID Function fails to recognize people with masks and people fail to unlock their phone.
Most of the users have switched to the option of unlocking their phone via PIN or they used to lower their masks every time when they needed to unlock the device. This should not be done. You should not touch your face and masks again and again. This kind of activity can make you victim of the virus. To avoid the inconvenience, the Tencent Security Xuanwu Lab has come up with an easy-to-use method using which iPhone users can unlock their smartphones using Face ID while their masks are on.
