If you possess the iPhone and used the advantage of Face ID (facial recognition feature) from Apple to unlock your phone, you’ll end up failing every time you try to unlock your phone while wearing the mask, not the design of the Face ID to accommodate any type of face coverings, whether a scarf or a muzzle.
Released the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week of new guidance urges people to wear any form of gags when out of the house, as there is evidence that wearing any type of masks can help in slowing down the spread of the COVID-19.
You have two options to deal with the iPhone: either allow for Face ID failure, then enter the passcode to unlock your phone, or off, this does not mean that it will unlock your phone at all times, but you can still use passcode to keep it locked.
How to turn off Face ID on the iPhone:
- Open the Settings app on the iPhone.
- Look for the option of Face ID & Passcode and click on it.
- Enter the passcode when prompted to do so.
If you just want to disable the feature of Face ID for a specific task, such as unlock your phone or approve purchases of Apple Pay, use the key at the top of the screen to turn off the water, labeled (iPhone Unlock), this means that your phone will not try to recognize your face at all.
After that, turn off Face ID service Apple Pay, this means that you will need to click the payment button using the passcode on the screen of Apple Pay, then enter the code before completing the transaction.
Turn off the water to specific tasks, you can still use the technique to secure the face from Apple when you log in to the application, or approve the purchases of the App Store, this is a task that is likely to play at home when you don’t wear a mask at all.
There is another feature to turn off the facial recognition feature for individual tasks, and that is that you can restart them as soon as you return home, without having to follow the process of the preparation of the facial recognition feature again.
Or instead, you can turn off the facial recognition feature completely and use the passcode place, just click the reset feature facial recognition confirmed your decision, where will be used after that passcode instead of the facial recognition feature to unlock your phone and purchases Apple Pay and the Apple App Store.
