Future MacBooks May Come With Face ID

Future MacBooks May Come With Face ID 4

It looks like Apple’s Face ID biometric authentication feature wouldn’t stay exclusive to just iPhones and iPads. Folks at 9to5Mac have discovered a piece of code in Apple’s upcoming macOS Big Sur operating system, which seem to indicate that Face ID will soon be supported on future MacBooks.

Face ID Support on Future MacBooks?

MacBooks

The piece of code in macOS Big Sur spotted by the aforementioned publication show references to Apple’s ‘TrueDepth’ camera. For instance, code snippets like “FaceDetect” and “BioCapture” was found in the macOS Big Sur beta update. For those who may not know, TrueDepth camera and Face ID technology was first introduced with Apple’s iPhone X smartphone and has since been used in newer iterations of both iPhones and iPads—never on the company’s notebooks, though.

Biometric authentication is, however, not a new feature on MacBooks. Current MacBook Air and Pro come with Touch ID integration, which enables users to unlock their notebooks via fingerprint. That being said, the possible addition of Face ID on Apple’s future notebooks will indeed make life ‘easier’ for consumers; especially when Apple is planning to integrate web-oriented biometric sign-ins on Safari 14.

Future MacBooks May Come With Face ID 5

We’ll only be able to find out whether Apple plans to add TrueDepth camera and Face ID technology on MacBooks later this year, probably alongside the announcement of its new ARM-based MacBooks. Regardless, do take this one with a grain of salt, at least an official announcement is released.
