Recently, Apple has released the new iOS 15.4 beta 2 update with the new Tap To Pay on iPhone and improved Face ID with Mask On feature. Yes, Apple made minor changes on Face ID with Mask On feature since many users started getting issues.

Once the user enabled Face ID with Mask On feature on iOS 15.4 beta 2, but the user has held the iPhone below eye level, the iPhone will show the Alert above the time to ‘Look Down To Unlock.’
