How to set up Face ID with Mask and Glasses on Apple iPhone

Apple devices come with support for Face ID, which is one of the most convenient biometric authentication systems. It unlocks the device quickly as soon as you look at the phone’s screen.

While the feature has been quite useful, many people started facing issues after the COVID-19 pandemic as people started wearing face masks. As the face mask is a hindrance to the facial recognition system, the Face ID didn’t work and users needed to manually enter the PIN to unlock the device.

Thankfully, Apple rolled out a new iOS update which added support for Face ID with Mask as well as Glasses, making it easier for the users to unlock the device when they are wearing a face mask as well as glasses.

We have already covered how to set up and enable the Face ID with Mask feature on your Apple iPhone and in this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to add support for Glasses with Face ID on the iPhone.
