The next version of iOS will soon be a reality, as Apple is all set to roll out its much-awaited iOS 15.4 next week. Although the US-based tech major has reportedly not shared an exact release date of iOS 15.4, your wait for the same will probably end on Tuesday.
The highly-anticipated iOS version, as per reports, will include major new features, with the most prominent being the ability for users to unlock their iPhone employing Face ID while wearing a mask.
Your iPhone would identify the area around your eyes to validate if you are the correct person to access the device. This feature, however, is only available on the iPhone 12 and later, as per reports.
Apple has been working on this feature for a long time, especially in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak. It has rolled out many beta versions aimed at developers in the past.
The upcoming iOS version will also come up with a host of new emojis, and developments to the iCloud Keychain system, and also a new voice for Siri users in the US region.
The iPhone models that will be running iOS 15.4 includes iPhone SE 3, iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, the iPhone SE 2020, and the iPhone SE.
The iOS 15.4 also brings Apple’s new Tap to Pay feature, transforming compatible iPhones into terminals for contactless payments. The update will also come up with enhancements to AirTags, the option to add custom domains to iCloud Mail right on the device, to name a few.
Apple launched four new products – iPhone SE with 5G, Mac Studio, Studio Display and iPad Air – at its much-awaited Spring event last night.
