Unlock your iPhone while wearing a mask

Apple Watch can now unlock your iPhone while wearing a mask. Face ID and the password on your iPhone can be bypassed as long as your Apple Watch is unlocked on your wrist (but only when wearing a face mask). To turn on this feature:

  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • From the menu, choose Face ID and Passcode.
  • Turn on the Unlock With Apple Watch option.
