Apple’s facial recognition patent might allow you to unlock, control your device

Apple has been awarded a patent for facial recognition technology that could allow you to unlock your computer or phone and activate certain functions.

Apple on Tuesday was awarded a patent for “Personal computing device control using face detection and recognition,” as noted by Apple Insider. That might sound a lot like Android’s face unlock feature, but in addition to unlocking your device with your face, Apple’s technology could also allow you to control it.
