  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the screen to go blank while attempting to unlock a device.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented a device from being unlocked using either Face Unlock or Fingerprint Unlock when the device had been idle for multiple hours.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes causes fullscreen video playback to flicker after enabling always on display features and locking the screen.
