The American electronics giant, Apple, has launched the new version of the operating system for smart devices, which is iOS 15.4, and which contains a wide range of new features that facilitate access and expand the functions of iPhone smartphones.
The new version of the operating system includes the long-awaited function known as “Universal Control” to operate the “Face ID” function, that is, the use of facial features as a password to unlock the iPhone, which allows the use of “Face ID”. ” even if the user is wearing a muzzle. The new version also includes 37 new emojis.
Fourth new update
As the name iOS 15.4 indicates, the new version represents the fourth new update to the base version of iOS 15 and was released with the iPhone 13 smartphone last September.
These updates, which began with 15.1 last December, add more features and functionality to Apple’s smartphone operating system and improve upon existing versions.
Characteristics of the new function.
The new “Universal Control” feature also enables the use of other Apple devices as a second screen for the smartphone, while moving the content of the phone between the two devices in an easy way as if they were a single device.
This feature was first revealed as part of the Mac OS X Monterey operating system, but its release was delayed during the fall, and then talk of its implementation began this spring. This feature was part of the iOS 15.4 beta and was released as a beta feature in Monterey OS 12.3 and iPad OS 4.15.
Since the Universal Control feature is still in the beta phase, some issues may occur during use and may not work with all iPhone devices currently. Apple has updated the Face ID feature so that it can be used with iPhone 12 and later generations with a muzzle.
And because this function relies on a small part of the user’s face to identify his identity, the user needs to be more precise regarding the angle of the phone when photographing the face when using the “FaceID” function.
