Apple is developing Face ID for Macs

Apple is developing Face ID for Macs”

All said and done, it's not confirmed whether Apple will be bringing Face ID to its Mac anytime soon.

Discovered within the developer beta of macOS Big Sur, 9to5Mac has found an extension with code to support a "PearlCamera" function on the Mac, a big hint that Face ID-equipped machines are in development, with "FaceDetect" and "BioCapture" references also discovered inside the extension too. This means that future Mac models would most likely come with a TrueDepth camera system, the same one we find in iPhones and iPad Pros.

The beta for macOS Big Sur, Apple's next major update for its proprietary PC operating system, apparently features references in the code to TrueDepth.

Currently, the MacBooks Air and Pro are Apple's only personal computers that offer biometric security features - and it's TouchID only.

So far, the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro now feature Touch ID being integrated into the keyboard.

Some Macs can already be unlocked with a fingerprint using Touch ID, a technology that Apple introduced in 2013 with the iPhone 5S. However, so far the Face ID has always been relegated to iPhone and iPad. No more typing passwords or touching the Touch ID scanner to unlock your Mac. These are all names that similar to codes used for Face ID in iOS, according to the report. In addition to Face ID feature, the TrueDepth camera also allows features like animated Memoji and superior integration with augmented reality apps on the devices.
