On Wednesday, Apple released iOS 13.5, a software update that makes it easier to unlock Face ID-enabled iPhones while wearing a mask.

The update simplifies the unlock process while you're wearing a mask, allowing you to get into your phone faster.

The passcode field will now appear when you swipe from the bottom of the lock screen while wearing a mask, according to the company's software release notes.

Before the update, Face ID wouldn't recognize you're wearing a mask and would attempt to scan your face before serving up the passcode screen to unlock your phone.
