Apple will be introducing a host of new features with iOS 11.3, mainly to be focused on the family purchases. While Face ID on the iPhone X made a lot of processes easier for users, some have been complaining about the missing functionality in Family Sharing’s Ask to Buy feature. However, Apple looks set to introduce the feature with the iOS 11.3 update, allowing users to utilise Face ID in Ask to Buy, instead of manually entering a password every time.
Because, Users have been complaining about Face ID not working with Ask to Buy. After entering a password once, you can enable Face ID for authentication.
Testing iOS 11.3 Beta, 9to5Mac spotted that purchase approvals on a parent’s device can be done using Face ID, after a one-time request to enter a password. Once the password has been entered, a user is asked if they would like to enable Face ID, in order to setup the feature. Notably, the feature is not documented in Apple’s iOS 11.3 beta release notes or on the Ask to Buy support page.
