This detail reveals that iPhone 8 facial recognition is a reality

Last week saw the first details of the HomePod firmware. A detail that confirms that Apple's smart speaker will be a real wonder and some curious secret that affects other devices of the apple bite. And, after unzipping the integrated code, reveals an open secret of the iPhone 8 : will have facial recognition and will be used to unlock the terminal.

According to the engineer who has discovered the code, it is revealed that there is an infrared facial unblocking in BiometricKit , the environment responsible for the Touch ID. Among other details, we now know that the technology integrated in the iPhone 8 will detect faces even though these are partially covered and also, from several angles. The name that baptizes this project is Pearl ID.

As everyone knows (of all Apple lovers and the smartphone sector), facial recognition was one of the most anticipated features in the iPhone 8 terminal, even replacing the Touch ID. Of course, we did not have them all with us, especially after having seen how unreliable it was in the Samsung Galaxy S8 . And is that if you can be "trolleado" with a photo, how would we use it to unlock our mobile or make payments?

Of course, Apple is different and in this section was not going to be less, since this environment indicates a decent level of security that avoids what has happened in the Korean flagship . So we can make it almost official: the iPhone 8 will carry facial recognition and we will use it for the same as the Touch ID, ie unlock and Apple Pay, or so indicates HomePod.
