Earlier this week, Apple shipped iOS 15.3 and iPadOS 15.3 to supported mobile devices, and you know what that means, right? Time for a new beta – the development cycle never ends. The company released iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4 to developers yesterday, and today these builds are available to people who are part of Apple’s beta program.

This upcoming version of Apple’s mobile software finally makes Face ID possible when you’re wearing a mask (and it only took two years!). In addition, there is a new functionality for glasses wearers, although you have to set it up with any glasses you wear regularly. That said, Face ID with a mask does not support sunglasses.

Until now, there was partial support for Face ID while wearing a mask, but that required an Apple Watch connected to the same phone. As of iOS 15.4, this is no longer necessary.

iPadOS 15.4 ships with Universal Control, which allows multiple Macs and iPads to be controlled with a single cursor and keyboard (provided those Macs are on macOS Monterey 12.3).

The betas also include new emoji, an Apple Card widget, an option to control keyboard brightness through the Control Center on iPad, custom email domain settings on the device, and easier access to SharePlay.

To try out these public beta releases, register your device here on Apple’s dedicated site. You will then receive the new software as an over-the-air update.
