After lots of notches, punch-hole displays & motorized pop-up selfie cams, it looks like the Cupertino giant, Apple, is bringing the same notch from iPhones to Mac Lineup for more safe & secure FaceID Technology.
As from the latest patent application filed by the Cupertino giant at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, it looks like Apple may be looking to add its Face ID authentication system to the MacBook & All-in-one Mac desktops Lineup as well.
As mentioned in the patent application with US Patent No. 20200097747 titled “Light Recognition Module for Determining a User of a Computing Device”, states that it mainly focuses on a light recognition module that can be deployed in computing devices. It also tells us about integrating infrared sensors into the Mac. That will project infrared illuminating lights at the user, later reflected and detected by the computer for authentication.
Apple may add all that tech in a notch at the top of the screen of the MacBook or Mac Desktops. The patent application also mentions that Apple is looking to bring its Face ID to laptops to safeguard the huge amount of sensitive and complex data in a more secure way.
