1. Unlock iPhone with mask

The first major update is support for Apple’s Face ID facial recognition with a mask.

It’s quite late, around two years after the start of the Covid 19 pandemic – so fans have been desperate for a long time.

You opt into the feature and allow the iPhone’s Face ID to scan unique features around your eyes.

Not only can you use it to unlock your iPhone, but you can also enable Apple Pay transactions and password autofill in apps and Safari.

However, this new feature is only available on the iPhone 12 or later, so anyone with an older iPhone is out of luck.

2. New Siri Voice and Emoji

Apple also introduced a new voice for Siri — in English, anyway.

According to Apple, it has an “incredibly natural sound” made possible thanks to new text-to-speech technology.

There are 37 new emojis including a “pregnant man” icon – find them all New emoji list Here.

Also, for the first time, you can choose a different skin color for each hand in the handshake emoji.

3. SharePlay Extension

Apple has optimized how SharePlay works in FaceTime.

The feature was added in iOS 15.1, allowing you to stream movies, TV shows, and music in sync with friends or family over FaceTime.

Previously, you could only launch SharePlay on FaceTime.

But it’s now possible to start a SharePlay session directly from a supported app – like Apple TV+, Disney+ or TikTok.

Which iPhones are compatible with iOS 15.4?

The update is available to all iPhone 6S and later owners and 7th generation iPod touch owners.

If you’re using an iPhone that can’t be updated to iOS 15.4, it’s important that you consider upgrading.

If you switch to a newer iPhone, you can get the latest security updates.

Using older models that can’t be updated with the latest security fixes is a huge risk — and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
