Face ID is the future of Apple device certification, and this feature may soon be used by more products than just iPhone and iPad Pro.
Although the MacBook is already equipped with a built-in fingerprint sensor that makes it easy to log into your Mac and other applications, the built-in Face ID is easier to use.
The latest patent shows that Apple is indeed considering adding a Face ID camera to the Mac.
The technology described in Apple's 2019 patent called Gaze-dependent display encryption makes it clear that this feature requires a MacBook with Face ID.
The patent details a technology that makes it impossible for others to read the screen when you use the device in public places.
The patent description claims that this technology can make the text in the place where others are watching scrambled, but the place where you are watching will be displayed normally, thereby preventing others from peeping at your screen content.
Of course, the computer needs 3D face recognition support to verify the identity of the user who is allowed to browse the screen, which is where the Face ID system comes into play.
Apple is expected to release a new MacBook this year, equipped with A series chips, but this technology is not expected to come soon.
