Apple would be testing prototypes of Face ID touchscreen Macs

A little while ago we commented on some rumors brought by MySmartPrice about the next generation of AirPods and also AirPower. However, behold, the site (which has information from Apple vendors) has released yet another information about Apple's future plans (or not) this time for Macs.

According to the report, Apple is currently testing computers with Face ID and touch screen. However, the MySmartPrice He stressed that neither feature should be implemented on Cupertino's giant computers anytime soon, saying such prototypes are for "internal research" only.

Whether or not Apple is developing face-recognition Macs, the fact is that the company is certainly working on multiple fronts to expand and leverage Face ID technology even more effectively.

In addition, we know that Apple "retired" the Touch ID (at least on the iPhone) a little over a year ago, when the 8/8 Plus iPhones were announced from l to c, no more released iPhone had the technology. So, at the very least, expect that this technology will also debut on Ma computers in the future.

As for the rumor of Macs with touch screenThis is not the first time we expect (and speculate) that the company's computers will adopt touch screens. In fact, this dream is as old as the netbooks (including 2010, there was a huge rumor that Apple would launch the first iMac with touch screen).

It's worth remembering that Apple never publicly supported the idea of ​​building touch-screen Macs, the company's own co-founder, Steve Jobs, stated in 2010 that notebooks with touch screen would be "ergonomically terrible". In a 2016 interview, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, said that every Apple device has its particularity and that it is not recommended to mix things up.

We really spent a lot of time looking at the numbers from previous years and figuring that to make the best computer, you can't try to turn macOS into an iPhone. Likewise, you can't turn an iOS into a Mac. So, each one is better at what it's meant to be, and we add what makes sense to add to each other, without fundamentally changing them to compromise their operation.

However, over the years Apple has applied for a number of patents related to this type of technology, which means that the company has at least researched and tested the possibility of making Macs with touchscreens. O iDownloadBlog The company suspects that the company will launch this computer in 2021, when Ma should equip the Macs with its own chips.

We'll see
