The reviews are in, and all four iPhone 13 models have set the standard for smartphones once again. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is pretty close to perfect with improved cameras, impressive battery life and a stellar display with a dynamically adjusting refresh rate. The iPhone 13 Pro is essentially the same, only $100 cheaper. And the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have their strengths, too — they’re certainly more than afterthoughts to the iPhone 13 Pro options.
And as good as these phones are, they’re still damn hard to unlock.
I’m not talking about when you’re in the comfort of your own office — offices… now there’s a name I haven’t heard in a while — or even outside in the open air. In those situations, the iPhone 13 models unlock via Face ID, same as every Apple phone since the iPhone X. But when you’re out and about and around other people wearing a mask, as you should be in this era of COVID-19 Delta variants, unlocking an iPhone 13 is as complicated as ever.
