Apple is working on a new feature that will allow the users to “unlock” their iPhone using their face instead of their fingerprint, according to Bloomberg.
In particular, as reported, for the new iPhone -intended to be released later in the year- Apple is testing a new, improved security system that will allow users to login, approve payments and launch secure apps by scanning their faces, according to people briefed on the new phone.
“Key” is a new “3-D sensor” -said sources, who have asked not to be named- as it is technology that is still under development. Also, as one of these people said, the company is also testing “eye-scan” technology to enhance the entire system.
The speed and accuracy of the sensor are the key features of this function; the system will be able to scan the user’s face and unlock the iPhone within a few hundred milliseconds, one source said.
It is designed to work even when left on the table, without being too close to the face.
This technology is still being tested, and may not appear on the new device; but it seems that Apple’s intention is to replace the “Touch ID fingerprint” scanner, according to a source.
As Bloomberg reports, an Apple spokesperson declined to comment.
