Face identification has been a feature of phones from a long time. However, it could soon find a new home in the form of the mac computers. This was hinted by the beta for the macOS Big Sur, which is Apple’s next major update for its pc operating system. The beta features references to True Depth, which is the camera system that allows Face ID to operate on Apple’s software.
A new report points to a number of references. These include the face detect and bio capture which said, are similar to the Face ID codes used for iOS. The Face ID is mostly something that depends on the specialized hardware built to support it. For now, MacBooks air and Pro are the only of Apple’s computers that support biometric security features. As it is said, bringing Face ID to computers sounds more sensible because the Touch ID requires a lot of special hardware and not all of Apple’s computers are designed for it.
However as for the final results, they may be coming out soon. The update is expected to arrive later in 2020, same as the first post-Intel PCs by Apple.
