APPLE'S LATEST PATENT FILING SUGGESTS FACE ID MIGHT SOON ARRIVE ON MAC
Apple has filed a patent that suggests Face ID could potentially be integrated into Mac computers. The patent filing, titled “Electronic Device Including a Camera Disposed Behind a Display,” explores the use of a front-facing camera positioned behind the display to overcome the limitation of cameras occupying space on the device’s front surface. By implementing this technology, Apple could potentially bring Face ID to the Mac, including both Mac computers and standalone external monitors. The filing describes an apparatus with a display that emits light through a front surface and a back surface, with a camera positioned on the back surface to capture images. The captured images would then be processed by a processor, which applies digital filters to reduce image distortion caused by the display. It’s important to note that this patent filing doesn’t guarantee the integration of Face ID into Macs, but it suggests Apple is at least exploring the possibilities.
