A debut made by Apple’s Face ID on iPhones back in 2017 and it jumped into iPads too in 2018. Whereas Mac’s didn’t get it yet, but seeing all the updates it’s not too far in Mac’s also.
Finally, Apple is now awarded by the US Patent and Trademark Office with a new patent titled “Presence Sensing”, which is detailed with a smarter version of Face ID for Mac’s featured with a smart auto-wake function.
The Mac’s camera could be used by Apple for its invention basically to avoid timing-out into sleep mode if there’s someone in front of the gadget. Its intelligent system would avert Mac’s from going into the sleep mode if a non-input based activity is directed by any user such as listening to an audio or reading a news story.

Commonly, it’s agitating for a user to wake the gadget again when it observes no activity for some time even if the user is actively seeing or doing any particular activity.
A reporter Ben Lovejoy point’s out in its report that even though Apple use’s the term “computing device” while filing which could equally apply to an iPhone or iPad, with a computer’s drawing, the patent is adorned. So, some visual cues are telling us that Mac will be soon featured with Face ID.
Now, all we know is that Patents don’t get approval easily so we have to wait for Apple’s update. If we see all this from Hardware perspective, the addition of Face ID for Mac’s is not easy as Apple’s MacBook already has a front-facing camera and a T2 security chip too which would protect the data from getting ruined.
