Paying with Apple Pay
Over the past couple of years, it’s been considerably more of a headache to use Apple Pay while wearing a mask. To use your iPhone, you had to either pull down your mask to use Face ID — something that would be frowned upon in many places — or key in your passcode or password.
Even if you wear an Apple Watch, it can still be awkward to contort your arm to get your wrist lined up with a payment terminal. It’s still often far easier to use your iPhone.
Fortunately, you’ll no longer need to make these choices with iOS 15.4. Like unlocking your iPhone and opening secure apps, using Apple Pay while wearing a mask just works — as long as you make sure you’re actually looking at your iPhone when you activate it.
