iOS 15.4 beta adds a highly sought-after Face ID upgrade and more — how to get it



Apple just released the first beta of iOS 15.4, unveiling a handful of new advancements and features that may hit the public rollout in the coming weeks. The updates unveil the Cupertino-based tech giant’s plan to rectify Face ID’s mask recognition issue (h/t The Verge).

Support for the PS5 DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers is another noteworthy perk. On top of that, iPhone users may get 37 new emojis in the near future, including a melting smiley that gives off the same energy as the “This is fine” meme (the webcomic featuring a calm dog inside a burning house).

iOS 15.4 beta: New features

iPhone users have been beseeching Apple to update Face ID for mask wearers. Mask mandates are still in effect in many parts of the world, and many must inconveniently and unsafely yank their face coverings down before accessing their phones.

Last year, Apple tried to rectify the issue by allowing users to unlock their iPhones via the Apple Watch, but of course, not everyone owns one.
