What to do if your iPhone’s battery is draining fast?

Although these processes do not usually affect performance, we might notice that the battery lasts a little less. Wait until the battery is completely discharged and then charge the iPhone again. By then, the update will be completely finished and the battery will return to its usual life.
What to do if Face ID doesn’t work while wearing a mask?
In order to use the new iOS 14.5 feature, which allows you to unlock the iPhone when wearing a facemask, you need to have an Apple Watch updated to the latest version of the system. In this case, watchOS 7.4. You can update your Apple Watch in the Watch app > My Watch > General > Software Update.
You also need to enable an option in the system settings, as this unlock method is not enabled by default. To enable iPhone to unlock when wearing a face mask, go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode and enter your iPhone passcode. Then, in the ‘Unlock with Apple Watch’ section, enable the option. You will need to accept the terms and wait for the feature to activate, it may take a few seconds.
Finally, this feature will only work when the iPhone, through Face ID and the TrueDepth camera, detects that we are wearing the mask.
