Apple’s Face ID facial recognition technology works great. In fact, to date it seems that none of Apple’s competitors have managed to create anything close to Face ID in terms of security and accuracy. However, it does not mean that Face ID is perfect. There is still plenty of room left for improvement.
The good news is that if you have been holding out on getting the 2020 iPhones, you might be interested to learn that according to analysts from Barclays, they believe that Apple could be looking to introduce an improved Face ID sensor on their 2020 iPhone lineup. It is unclear as to what kind of improvements we’re talking about, but it should still be a welcome upgrade if true.
Apple has made some tweaks to Face ID ever since the tech was introduced, but it has mostly been on the software front, meaning that there is only so much it can do. However, by upgrading the sensors, in theory it should help improve it in terms of speed and accuracy and security. That being said, the rumors have also suggested that in addition to Face ID, Apple could also be looking to bring back Touch ID.
There have been rumors saying that Apple might introduce an in-display Touch ID sensor to its 2020 lineup. While in-display sensors aren’t new, this will be a first for Apple, where prior to Face ID launching, it was largely believed that an in-display Touch ID sensor could be the next step.
