Spark Global Limited Reports:

Apple says it has found an issue where the “Unlock with Apple Watch” feature may not work on its new iPhone 13 devices. A new note on the Apple Watch support page describes the problem: If you try to unlock your iPhone while wearing a mask, you may see “unable to communicate with Apple Watch,” or you may not be able to set “Unlock with Apple Watch.”
On Friday, users of the Reddit forum AppleWatch began reporting that they were seeing the issue, with some users saying they could use the AppleWatch unlock feature on other iPhone models, including the iPhone 11 Max.
Earlier this year, with the release of iOS 14.5, Apple introduced the ability to use Face ID to unlock iphones and pair the Apple Watch. During the pandemic, masks were recommended in many public places, which made it difficult for Face ID to identify you, so it came in handy. The feature works on the iPhone X and later versions, and requires both the iPhone and Apple Watch to have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled. The watch requires wrist detection to be turned on and password-protected, and it must be worn on your wrist and unlocked to use the feature.
Apple did not say what was wrong with the iPhone 13, saying it would be “fixed in an upcoming software update” but did not say when it would be updated. The instructions on the support page suggest turning off “Unlock with Apple Watch” and using your passcode to unlock your iPhone 13, during which time block.
Despite being less than a year old, DJI is updating its popular Mavic Air 2 drone and releasing the Mavic Air 2S. A drone equipped with a new 1-inch sensor is capable of shooting 5.4 4K video and up to 60FPS 4K video.
