Following the introduction of the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, Apple has released iOS and iPadOS 14.1, with the iOS 14.1 update presumably coming pre-installed on the new iPhones at launch.
There’s no word yet on what’s included in these updates, but we’ll update this article as soon as we find out. Apple has also released tvOS 14.1 for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models.
Update: Apple appears to have pulled the iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS 14.1 updates from the developer portal, suggesting the updates were perhaps released by mistake.
I’d love to have seen a point update with a solution to face masks.Apple has a real opportunity to skip Face ID by verifying if the wearer’s Apple Watch is nearby. The Watch is already a secure authenticated device. When you put on the Watch at home, Face ID on your iPhone verifies you and passes on that security to your Watch. As long as you keep the Watch on, it should be able to unlock your iPhone even if you’re wearing a mask.
The fact that your phone is “nearby” doesn’t necessarily mean that you are the one using the phone.
