Face ID, “apple ring” in! Google might hold the secret to innovating the next huge iPhone?

When Apple first introduced its advanced 3D face unlock technology as part of the iPhone X back in 2017, there was a lot to dislike…

Face ID was slower to unlock your iPhone than Touch ID; It didn’t work when you looked at your phone off the corner, and it took up a lot of space, giving the iPhone a cosmetic makeover, resulting in an iconic notch. Sole The reason I sold the iPhone XS and iPhone XR back in 2019 before moving on to the Huawei P30 Pro, but it also wasn’t one of the reasons I kept using one of Apple’s 2018 iPhones.

So, I naturally had some reservations before I ordered iPhone 13 mini earlier this year. I’m used to the convenience of the iPhone 8 Old but precious The fingerprint sensor, although slow, is The Pixel 6 Pro’s scanner also allowed me to unlock my phone even if it was sitting on a table.

However, it turns out that Face ID has gotten better over the years! Not only is it faster to recognize my face, but it also does so from more (weird) angles. What’s more, the notch is now smaller (it’s even gone on the iPhone 14 Pro series), and that makes me feel like I’m giving up less screen real estate for this convenient security feature.

So, Face ID is perfect — end of story. Good-bye.

Well, not really… Apple’s facial recognition technology still has some notable limitations that remove the “it just works” factor that Tim Cook & Co. loves so much. But then… what comes after Face ID? Touch ID back? Or something completely different? You know what… Google might have the answer!

Face ID is the “magic Apple technology” that everyone loves…when it works (which it’s not 100% of the time)

As we mentioned at the beginning, Face ID really turned me on. But that doesn’t make it perfect…

In fact, I think my desire to accept Face ID or even Bearing It’s largely due to my absolute appreciation for the iPhone 13 mini — mostly thanks to how small this phone is, which is what makes it so unique to me.

Sure, Apple’s technical improvements to Face ID have helped as well, but facial recognition is still far from perfect…

  • Face ID still won’t let you unlock your phone if you’re wearing a head covering that covers your eyes and the rest of your face
  • Although Face ID works with face masks, it takes much longer to read your face (if it works at all).
  • Due to the limited angular range of Apple’s 3D unlocking system, you still can’t unlock your phone if it’s sitting on a desk
  • With Face ID, it’s somewhat difficult to unlock your phone if you’re moving quickly, like when you’re jogging outside or on a treadmill.
  • Even when Face ID fails to read your face, there’s a lack of immediate response to let you know to correct your position, resulting in having to type in your PIN (like a caveman!)

If Touch ID doesn’t return, what comes after Face ID for Apple’s iPhone? Google hides the answer!

the correct! If Face ID isn’t perfect, fast, and reliable enough, what other option do Apple and the rest of the phone makers have to allow you to unlock your phone, make payments, etc.? What other options do you have we, users, ? Well, the answer is probably part of something called “ambient navigation”…

If you’re a phone enthusiast, the easiest way to understand ambient computing is to look at what Google is doing something we all know and love – the Google Assistant!

Google Assistant started as Google Voice Search, then passed through Google Now (a less intelligent version of AI focused on predicting user behavior), and is now the smartest virtual assistant, at least among those available to consumers.

With Google’s massive data collection and powerful machine learning algorithms, Google Assistant is an integral part of the company’s present and future Ambient Computing, practically carrying the idea of ​​”multiple computers talking to each other” together.

That’s why in 2016 Sundar Pichai & Co not only launched the first Pixel phone with Google Assistant on board, but also launched a whole host of devices that included a virtual bot – Pixel Buds, Google Home, Nest Hub, and so on.

The future of Face ID may be… ‘No ID’ – Could ‘Apple Ring’ be the answer to phone security of the future?

Anyway, the reason we’re going through all this Google talk is because Google and Apple are the two companies that have the hardware, the software, and most importantly, the database to create the future of Ambient Computing that allows our technology to communicate behind the scenes in order to make things like find a song or trivial fact Or unlocking your phone is as smooth as can be.

This is why I believe the future of secure phone unlocking is for us to do as little as possible to unlock our phones. Or rather, do nothing.

Those who own an Apple Watch (I don’t) and an iPhone will know how the iPhone doesn’t require Face ID to allow you to unlock it when it’s near the Apple Watch. So, in a way, Ambient Computing is really happening all around us – doing exactly what it’s meant to do – reducing our input in order to get things done.

Unlock your phone with the help of Apple Ring and Google Ring as part of Ambient Computing

The real challenge for Apple and Google is to find a way to allow you to unlock your phone and make secure purchases even when you’re not wearing your smartwatch or when you’re not home, surrounded by other Apple or Google devices talking to each other. another to give you location-based access to your phone (Android already does this).I’ve thought about itThere is no single thing that humans wear or carry that can be used as a Axis From this ambient computing thing. Sure, some wear their watch at all times (even to sleep), but others, like me, don’t. And some will have a Google Nest Hub at home or a Home Pod, but others (like me) won’t.

How about an Apple Ring/Google Ring then?

We’ve heard rumors of something like this before, but it’s never been more than wishful thinking. Honestly, I realize what I do now isn’t much different either. But how complicated is that, really!

Google managed to shrink the 100GB Google Assistant down to just 0.5GB, allowing the company to turn the virtual bot into something that lives on your Pixel phone, earbuds, or tablet, rather than having to reside in the cloud. On the other hand, Apple has been putting PC-level chips in its iPhones and ultra-compact, ultra-thin processors in its AirPods for ages.

So I am convinced could You have a ring, necklace, or other wearable accessory that could become a cornerstone of the Apple or Google ecosystem and talk to our phone, allowing us to unlock it without even thinking about it.

Of course, this doesn’t even scratch the surface! Surely the smart circuit will have plenty of other applications – perhaps to monitor your health or, who knows – allow you to get into and start your car?

That is, of course, if Apple and Google don’t go straight to… chip implants? This way you will not be able to lose your ring. Am i right?
