Face ID Has Made Touchscreen Gloves Practical Again

When Apple introduced Touch ID, it created a quandry for touchscreen gloves. If you did away with a short passcode, in favor of the fingerprint reader, then it became a nuisance to wear gloves, even if they had capacitive fingers to work on a smartphone. Now, with Face ID, touchscreen gloves are more practical, and Mujjo offers a wide selection of Touchscreen Gloves (starting at $24.13).

If you're partial to knit, Mujjo has got you covered, literally. If you want something more luxurious, the company also offers a really stylish high-end black leather model with a Velcro closure. I really liked these as they had a bit of a Kylo Ren vibe! Just make sure you use the online sizing guide to order the right size as they have a snug fit. The Velcro does help adjust the size around the wrist, but you'll still want to get a good measurement.

What I liked about most of the pairs is that they don't look like traditional smartphone touch-capable gloves. Those usually have an obvious capacitive tip, often in a different color, which is a giveaway that these are tech gloves. Most folks wouldn't know that the Mujjo gloves serve a secret purpose... smartphone use!


  • Assorted selections
  • Leather models are luxurious
  • Velcro closure on wrist of leather models
  • Smartphone-compatible
  • Don't look like smartphone gloves


  • Need to order the right size
  • High-end models are expensive

Final Verdict

If you are looking for a pair of touchscreen-compatible gloves, Mujjo has a nice variety to choose from.
