Apple has quietly confirmed that the much-anticipated rollout of its iOS 15.4 update is coming sometime next week.
iOS 15.4, which has been tested in beta since January, will allow users to unlock their smartphone while wearing a mask.
It also includes 37 new emoji, including a pregnant man, a motorcycle tyre, a slide, a disco ball, a troll with a club, coral, voov champagne kidney beans and a low battery.
There’s also a new ‘gender neutral’ voice for its smart assistant Siri, called Quinn, recorded by a member of the + community.
Apple’s confirmation follows the unveiling of new products on Tuesday, including the third generation phone in its ‘budget’ iPhone SE line, starting at £419 ($429).
Since the start of the pandemic, getting Face ID to automatically recognise our face to unlock our iPhones has been a bugbear as we’ve had masks over our faces.With iOS 15.4, that seems to have finally been remedied
