Earlier leaks suggest that the Apple’s most awaited phone, the upcoming iPhone 8 will be having face recognition technology.
New reports suggest that the iPhone 8 will be capable of unlocking the phone through facial recognition technology even when it’s laying flat on the table.
Over a week ago, iHelp leaked Apple code where we can clearly see a line in the firmware referring to “Pearl,” Apple’s internal name for its facial recognition technology, alongside words including “unlock” and “resting.”
Recent leaks have backed up the report published by Bloomberg earlier this year. Here is what the report said:
“The facial recognition sensor’s speed and accuracy are focal points of the feature. It can scan a user’s face and unlock the iPhone within a few hundred milliseconds, the person said. It is designed to work even if the device is laying flat on a table, rather than just close up to the face.”
Assuming true, this would make facial recognition technology more usable as a Touch ID substitution, by disposing of the unique fingerprint sensor in return for an innovation that would unlock your iPhone in less than a second.
