Apple’s iOS 15.4 beta was made available to developers on Thursday, and one of the update’s features supports using Face ID while wearing a mask. People who wear glasses will also have the option to “add glasses” to their Face ID. The feature will work for people who wear a mask and glasses at the same time, but it doesn’t work with a mask and sunglasses.

Universal Control, an Apple feature that lets you move content between multiple Apple devices, was also introduced in the iPadOS 15 beta. The feature was originally announced as part of macOS Monterey, but was delayed over the fall.

There are also new emojis, like heart-shaped hands, a biting lip, and a pregnant person in the update. There are over 37 new emojis in the update. The emojis have been revealed last falland also include melting face, tear-holding face, bird’s nest, coral, lotus, low battery and red beans.

Another feature included in the update is the ability to copy text from objects using the camera in the Notes or Reminders apps.
