There’s a big update coming to iOS, and it’s expected to bring some welcome improvements.

The release is expected to come by the end of the month, and here’s what will be new in the iOS 14.5, according to MacWorld.

1. You’ll be able to unlock your iPhone with your Apple Watch. ⌚️

One frustrating part of using the face recognition is that when you’re masked in public, your phone doesn’t recognize you. With the new release, you’ll be able to automatically unlock your phone when you’re wearing an unlocked Apple Watch.

To do this, after you have the update, you’ll go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode and enable the “Unlock with Apple Watch” toggle.

You’ll need to be wearing your watch, which will have to be unlocked.

When your phone sees you’re wearing a mask, you’ll feel a double vibration on the watch and your phone will say “Unlocking with Apple Watch.”

Are we all going to collectively let out a loud “FINALLY” sigh?
