According to Jon Prosser, Apple engineers have finalized the Face ID system, and now it will work better in modern “covid” realities. The insider claims that the new face scanner is able to recognize the user even when he put on a mask or glasses. Moreover, fogged lenses will not become an obstacle to an improved system.
To test the new array of Face ID sensors, Apple created a unique case for the iPhone 12. It houses a new camera array at the top. In terms of layout, the latter differs from that which is in the current generation of apple smartphones. For example, in the new block, the front camera is located on the left, and not in the center. Sources believe that this is the layout that will be used in the iPhone 13.
The new facial recognition system is reportedly undergoing extensive tests. The testers test the performance of the prototype in a variety of conditions: they put on a variety of goggles and masks, as well as changing the lighting and the angle at which the sensors “look” at the user.
At the same time, there is a chance that iPhone 13 owners will not be able to try out all these innovations right away. There is a chance that Face ID capabilities will be expanded in one of the iOS updates. Until then, the face scanner on new Apple smartphones will not be able to recognize the masked user.
Recall that the official announcement of the iPhone 13 should take place in less than a month. According to some analysts, the first autumn presentation of Apple will be held on September 14th. On it, the company can show not only the iPhone 13, but also other new items. For example, Apple Watch Series 7.
