According to FrontPageTech insider and blogger Jon Prosser, Apple is preparing updated Face ID sensors for iPhone 13.
The company's engineers now have many prototypes of the technology. One of them looks, like a case. It's being tested on the iPhone 12.
According to an insider, the new sensors will be able to identify the masked user. Recall that the current generation of Face ID requires the Apple Watch smartwatch connected to the iPhone for this process. Prosser noted that engineers are testing the new Face ID in different conditions. For example, with fogged up glasses, as this is quite a popular problem when wearing a mask. What's interesting is that the company is asking testers to register faces without masks and only then put them on.
It's not clear yet whether this unlock will appear at the launch of iPhone 13 sales. Perhaps the feature will be activated in future software updates.
