Face ID on iPhone 13 can also handle blinds and glasses

Upcoming smartphones iPhone 13 From Apple it will be equipped with new devices that provide facial recognition. Face ID technology can recognize the user even if he is wearing a curtain and glasses at the same time.

It’s interesting the way Apple is testing the updated Face ID. Staff participating in the test received a special case containing the appropriate hardware, which they attached to an iPhone 12. The testers did not work with the iPhone 13 prototype. Details provided by Jon Prosser, author frontpagetech.com.

Apple asked testers to record their (unobstructed) face into the system and then check the functionality of the technology in different situations. Staff also tests Face ID using a curtain, glasses, or both.

Anyone who wears eyeglasses knows that they tend to blur when wearing a curtain. Apparently Apple wants the iPhone 13 to deal with such veiled faces. Whether it will succeed is highly questionable, but at least in internal tests, it is trying to do so.

The testing process is said to be very detailed, which is not surprising for Apple. The reliability of Face ID for iPhone 13 is verified by employees in various lighting conditions, indoors and outdoors. In addition, they experiment with glasses and curtains of various shapes, sizes and styles.

Apple also tested the data with the in-display fingerprint sensor, but was not satisfied with its functionality. So he built a more perfect Face ID, which already works reliably in the current generation.

A look at the case proves well that the iPhone 13 will have a smaller or narrower notch in the screen. The camera moved to the left and the phone was pointed from the middle of the notch under the top edge.

Like other companies, Apple doesn’t like it when information about products that haven’t been offered is publicly available. Perhaps that is why testers were assigned a case with only Face ID and not the entire iPhone 13, which can suddenly appear on the websites of well-known whistleblowers.
