When Apple brought Touch ID to their Mac computers, many rightly understood that it was only a matter of time before Face ID was introduced as well. After all, some of Apple’s Mac computers come with built-in webcams, so why not mount the Face ID components under there as well, right?
It turns out we were right, more or less. A new report from Bloomberg revealed that Apple has apparently developed Face ID for Mac. The report says Apple originally planned for Face ID to appear with the 2021 iMac (which was also rumored to be a redesign), but for whatever reason the company is now choosing to delay the launch and will miss the first iteration of the new design.
One of the technical challenges of Face ID for Mac would be trying to place the point projector in the camera. On iPhones and iPads, this isn’t an issue given how “thick” the devices are, but we imagine this could be a problem for MacBooks. However, the iMac appears to have enough space, so we can’t say for sure why Apple is delaying it.
Maybe they’re hoping to get Face ID small enough that they can fit it across all of their devices, but that’s just speculation on our part. Either way, it’s still good news that Apple is considering the feature, so now it’s just a matter of waiting to see when it might make its debut.
