iPhone 5 rumors: Apple’s next smartphone to feature face recognition

A new patent application from Apple reveals that the future iPhone and iPad could benefit from some innovative technology in the form of face recognition.

ITProPortal reports that Apple has recently filed a patent called “Electronic Device Operation Adjustment Based on Face Detection,” that “details the way a device can act when it recognizes its user.”

According to the patent, the feature could apply to an “electronic device having at least a front facing image capture device and a front facing display device arranged to display visual content.”

The device would thus take an image, match it to data loaded onto it and unlock the device.

Such a feature would prove more secure than other similar applications as the device won’t give alternative access methods in order to unlock.

In addition, the user’s profile would be automatically loaded, with pre-determined settings and applications preferences.

According to the patent, “the facial data can be used to determine an orientation of the human face relative to the orientation of the presented visual content. In other words, the electronic device can determine if the orientation of the presented visual content is substantially the same, or different, than the orientation of the human face.”
