Apple Patent Suggests Face ID Coming to MacBooks

  • Apple is looking to bring its Face ID biometric authentication system to its Mac range of desktops and portables.
  • A newly granted patent specifies that the technology may be brought to MacBooks.
  • The technology is designed to provide security measures, with a thin profile that won’t interfere with use.
  • The patent proposes that the Face ID module will be housed in a notch-like partition adjacent to the display layer.

Apple has been granted a new patent for its Face ID biometric authentication system, which is currently used in the iPhone. The patent specifies that the technology may be brought to MacBooks, allowing for secure access to sensitive data stored on the device while not compromising its profile. The patent proposes that the Face ID module will be housed in a partition adjacent to the display layer, in the form of a notch.

The patent text is primarily concerned with the use of the technology in laptops, but a single drawing in the patent also suggests that the Face ID notch may be used in an iMac-style chassis. This patent follows Apple’s previous statement that Face ID would be coming to more devices, and is the first to specify that it will be included in MacBooks.

The patent is credited to six inventors, four of whom are also working on a related patent that proposes the iMac be made from a single sheet of glass. This suggests that Apple is looking to include Face ID in its Mac range, allowing for secure access and seamless user experience.
