Face ID for Mac “developed” by Apple but will not be available soon

We’ve long expected Apple to offer Face ID for Mac models, just like it does for the iPhone and iPad Pro. Bloomberg’s report on an upcoming high-end MacBook Air contains a mix of good and bad news on that front.

Another feature that some have long wanted for MacBooks is the ability to connect to mobile data directly when Wi-Fi isn’t available. The report says the location is the same for both features – they will arrive, but not soon …

Apple has also developed underlying Mac support for both cellular connectivity – the ability for Macs to connect to the Internet via smartphone networks – and Face ID, the company’s facial recognition system. But neither feature seems to be available anytime soon.

“Soon” in this context probably means this year.

It keep saying that Apple actually delayed Face ID for iMac.

Face ID was originally planned to arrive in this year’s iMac redesign, but is now unlikely to be included in the first iteration of the new design.

Apple has multiple references to Face ID for Mac in various patents, dating back several years.

A potential challenge in bringing Face ID to MacBooks is the depth required for the dot projector. Both iPhones and iPads have a lot more depth to play with than a MacBook lid. But it’s not clear why this would be a problem for the iMac unless the company intends to reduce the size of the bezel to a point where height also becomes an issue; a notch isn’t really an option for a Mac screen.

One thing that might help is that Apple would have been able to combine the point projector and infrared camera into a single unit. This should reduce the notch width in this year’s iPhone range and could possibly allow Apple to fit the unit into a corner of the display, where component height isn’t an issue.

As for mobile data support, it is likely to have more niche appeal. While some of us would like it for convenience, many are happy to connect to their iPhone, especially since Apple has made the experience much smoother by simply selecting it from the Wi-Fi menu bar icon without the need to do anything in there end of the iPhone.

Any mobile data support now would obviously have to include 5G, and the components for it still remain relatively expensive, so it’s no surprise that Apple is holding the fire for now.
