As reported by TechRadar, the iOS update, which was released on Monday (March 14), includes new and essential features such as the ability to unlock your phone with a masked face, a new set of emojis, and significant AirTag security updates.

A melting face, a nest, crutches, a lotus flower, and some fascinating new skin tone possibilities are among the 37 new emojis in iOS 15.4. The ability to modify skin tones in a single emoji is the highlight here. A handshake might now indicate a warm hug between two people of various skin tones.

Undoubtedly, many users are enthralled by the arrival of the disco ball emoji. After first being teased in July 2021, the feature is now available for dancefloor dwellers and dance music fanatics worldwide.
