Face ID updated by Apple to prevent removal of masks

A new change has been brought into the face ID feature of Apple in which users no longer have to remove their masks to unlock their iPhones during the coronavirus pandemic. Users were having trouble unlocking their phones earlier but this feature detects the masks and takes users to the passcode screen directly.

It's not unlocking with the mask. I have a Pixel 4 XL, and I can actually appreciate what Apple did here. I had to create an automation using Tasker to achieve the same thing on my end. Basically disabling my facial recognition when I'm not at home or when I'm using Smart Lock.
