Not everyone is ditching their masks.

Nope, masks are here to stay for the foreseeable future for a lot of us, at least in public and enclosed spaces.

Still trying to kill your grandma, subby?

I was fine with the pin...

I'll be overjoyed if this doesn't get disabled on my work phone, regular face ID works but when I'm wearing the work mandated KN95 mask I have to type the forced complex password every damn time.

Update hasn't been authorized for install yet, boo.

I haven't had COVID, nor the flu, nor a cold, since late 2019.

I'm wearing a mask from now on in crowded public places. For good.

going to be wearing a mask at the grocery store for the foreseeable future.  That is one place where the at risk almost HAVE to go.  I do it for them

and before anyone talks about doing Grocery store pickup, it sucks where i shop.  1 week delay, no add ons, and the substitutions are a joke.  Asked for plain panko bread crumbs and got seasoned bread crumbs

I'm sure they're really kicking themselves over it.  I mean, what possible use could they have now for software that can recognize faces by just the eyes?

My grandmothers are dead you insensitive clod.

All of the 'just in time for everyone to stop wearing masks' comments are incredibly US centric. Other parts of the world wear masks when it's appropriate.

Face ID on my iPhone 12 Pro seemed to adapt to me wearing a mask. It worked about 50% of the time. I noticed I could slid the mask on my face maybe 1/4" down my nose and it would unlock, but pushing the metal moldable nose piece of the mask back up 1/4" and it was a 50/50 chance. I guess enough of my eye structure was already in the Face ID for it to be a match for unlocking.

I've been using my Apple Watch to pay without removing my mask.  Works pretty good, don't have to pull out my phone.

Always wondered: will Face ID work on a dead person?

Oooorrrrrr, you could just take the "this is my face" pic while wearing a mask.

Or do Apple phones only allow one face image?

It allowed to go create a second image, but it didn't work for me with a mask.

That's ok: I just tried it with my Android and it doesn't work.

So kudos, Apple.

Did they add a section to Sounds & Haptics that allows me to adjust the volume for individual apps? No. farkers.

That eventual first cold is going to knock you on your backside.

My phone has iris stuff.  Don't know if the mask impacts it or not.

No.  Pre-covid the number of countries where masks were regularly worn in public is likely under 10.
