Apple has been granted a patent for a Face-ID-like system that can be implemented on the MacBook. The wait may well be over. Finally.
Face ID is one of these technologies that we thought only existed in sci-fi movies for the longest time. Then came the iPhone 8 and suddenly Face ID became normality. It’s one of these things that you did not know you needed and now you could not live without it.
Well, it might become a reality soon. Apple was just granted a patent for a Face-ID-like system that can be implemented on a MacBook.
The idea behind the new patent is to improve the functionality of Power Nap, a feature that allows current Macs to perform certain background tasks while being in sleep mode and always be ready when you wake it. The patent would extend Power Nap’s capabilities to using the camera. When it would detect a person, it would power up Face-ID to wake and unlock the computer.
