Face ID has been incredibly convenient for keeping your iPhone secure but our masked faces have brought us back to manually entering passwords once again. To solve this issue, Apple has introduced a new feature in the recently released iOS 14.5 update that lets you unlock your iPhone with your Apple Watch. And it works just like you would imagine. Once enabled, Face ID will instantly recognize that you're wearing a face mask and then seamlessly unlocks your phone. All you need is an iPhone X or later and a Series 3 Apple Watch or later and you're good to go.
