    Hi Guys,

    Wife is wanting to upgrade to 12 from her 7 but worried about unlocking the phone with face id, when she is outside with a face mask.

    Do owners have any problems with that.

    What do you mean by "problems"? If FaceID detects a mask on your face, it'll bring up the "Enter Passcode" screen immediately and you'll have to input your PIN. A workaround is wearing an Apple Watch and the iPhone will unlock immediately if it detects a face mask on your face.

    Ever since iOS 14.5, I've been able to use FaceID while wearing a mask AND my Apple Watch.

    If she has an Watch running a newer version of watchOS then she can enable the Unlock With Watch feature.

    My 12 pro max doesn’t recognize me with a face mask on, either. The people in the bank always put up their hands when i enter?🤪
