Apple’s heavy reliance on Face ID hit a pretty big level last year, when people around the world had to wear face masks. While waiting for this magical technology that can safely detect faces even while wearing masks, Apple implemented a temporary workaround that used the Apple Watch as a kind of secondary key. Of course, there are strict requirements for this to work, but that was sufficient for most users.
Sadly, that’s not the case if you’ve paired an Apple Watch and an iPhone 13 where the feature just doesn’t work. The good news is that Apple has already promised a fix that will be rolled out in an upcoming software update. In the meantime, affected users will want to turn off this feature completely.
IPad mini 6 users apparently have their own issues to worry about. As reported by Dieter Bohn of The Verge and other users, the new iPad features what has been dubbed “jelly scrolling,” where one side of the screen scrolls slower than the other side. This creates a rather confusing visual experience, especially for those who browse a lot of web pages or social media.
It seems that the problem is more pronounced in portrait orientation and sometimes even disappears when holding the iPad mini 6 in landscape. Apple has yet to recognize this problem, and it is still unclear how widespread the problem is.
