Report Claims Apple will Bring Face ID to Macs, iPhones, and iPads in the Next Couple of Years

Apple is planning to add Face ID to its most popular devices, including Macs, iPhones, and iPads, according to a recent news report…

Apple will support Face ID for Macs, iPads, and iPhones, in the next couple of years, according to a recent news report by Bloomberg. This, as written by Mark Gurman, who believes Apple would already offer this convenience but isn’t equipping all its gear due to cost cutting measures. Also, by adding an embedded camera in the screen, the company could eliminate the notch at the top.

Apple might start offering Face ID in the 2022 iPhone, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a very reliable track record for predicting the organization’s moves. If this does happen, the iPhone would undergo a significant redesign which would get rid of the notch at the top in favor of a sleeker punch-hole form factor.

“It won’t happen this year, but I’d bet Face ID on the Mac is coming within a couple of years. I expect all iPhones and iPads to transition to Face ID within that timeframe, too. Eventually, a camera embedded in the screen would help differentiate Apple’s pricier devices by eliminating the notch at the top. The facial recognition sensor gives Apple two central features: security and augmented reality. Touch ID, more convenient or not, only provides the former.”
