Apple Watch Can Be Used to Unlock iPhones with Masks in IOS 14.5
Due to corona times, we have to put on a mask and with that the FaceID becomes useless. So, to solve that Apple now allows users to unlock their iPhones with the use of their iWatch. The feature is only compatible using devices above iPhone 10 and Series 3 watches.
All you have to do for this new feature is, unlock your watch and keep it nearby to the iPhone device, preferably grabbing the device with the same hands you have your watch on. Now, when you use FaceID, it’ll work just as fine.
Siri Got Some New Voices
Siri now talks in new voice tones and it will be so much helpful for those who have a different accent than the default American accent of Siri.
Apple fulfilled their promise of diversifying their service for each and everyone who uses an iPhone and this is proof of the same.
Newly Added Emoji For Couples
