Brett’s 15.4 iTip: Even if you previously set up Face ID, you’ll have to do this again so that the iPhone can “recognize the unique features around the eye area to authenticate.” You must have an iPhone 12 or higher for this to work! (NOT available on iPads yet!) You can add multiple pairs of glasses, similar to the way we could add multiple fingerprints for TouchID. I found this worked superbly during my recent trip this past week, although I’m still a little concerned about my trade-off in security.

Jeff’s 15.4 iTip: If you have both a Mac and an iPad signed in to your iCloud account, you can now use a single keyboard and cursor to control both devices.  To turn this on, after you update your Mac to macOS12.3, go to System Preferences -> Displays, and then click the Universal Control button.  Then turn on each of the features.  (You will see several warnings that this is still just a beta feature.)  I used this feature for a short period of time last night, and Universal Control worked incredibly well.  It is immediately apparent to me that this is a feature that I will find very useful.
