Apple makes it easier to skip Face ID while wearing face masks

Apple has released a software update that makes it easier for smartphone users to log in without taking off face masks. As per clips released around the update, iPhones with iOS 13.5 Beta will automatically be prompted to use the manual passcode entry if using Face ID while wearing a face covering. This way users won’t have to take off their face mask to log in.

Facial recognition and finger print scanning as a phone lock is stupid. How are people so lazy or are in such a rush that they can't type in a pin or draw a pattern to unlock their phone? Same goes for products like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. "I want to have a service provided for me as fast as physically possible, so I will give up my security and/or privacy in the name of convenience." Then there are those who must have the newest products for the sole purpose that it's "New Tech". Hyper-Consumerism is tiresome.

Yet another horrible idea Just like News Voice. Creating problems to fix later. While the solution of using passwords and PIN codes is starring them squarely in the face. They seem to have time and resources To fix a FACE ID problem that doesn't exist - Just like Viktor And other admins of NewsVoice have the time and resources to block comments which are disparaging to NEWSVOICE But they cannot block the vile vitriol which is usually present in the FREEDOM OF SPEECH filled nasty comments. Where is my AMERICAN freedom of speech Viktor and Fareem? In Sweden, or in Russia?

So they made it easier to break into people's phones? I am sorry but masks are probably going to be a thing during flu seasons and stuff because people made them. Are you never going to turn this off?

Apple’s biggest selling point right now is privacy, so... um... yeah... why?
