Face ID with mask compatible Devices in 2023

🗓️ May 30, 2023 By ✍️ Jaysukh patel

Unlike Android’s Face Unlock, Apple’s Face ID is reliable and safer, to date. Earlier, when Apple launched the first iPhone with Face ID support, people were disappointed because of uncertainty and doubts. But then, with every update, Apple has focused on security and now iPhone and iPad’s Face ID is sure to be trusted. As of now, Face ID plays a major role in protecting iPhone, iPad, Apple ID, Secure Purchases from App Store, and many more. Face ID uses the TrueDepth Front Camera of the iPhone, responses correctly when the iOS and iPadOS devices are at arm’s length which unlocks.

Unfortunately, not all the iPhone and iPad supports the Face ID, as it requires TrueDepth Front Camera, to detect your Face. Notably, if you are setting up the Face ID, don’t cover the mouth and nose with any object such as Mask or Cloth, however, it is programmed to work with the Glasses and Contact lens.
