The feature, called ‘Presence Sensing’, will allow a mac in standby mode to be aware of human presence close to it.
Apple has been working on improving speed and security for the Macbooks as much as the iPhones. It has been now revealed that Apple Macbooks will soon support FaceID, Apple’s version of face detection.
All macOS powered computers could soon have the feature. The feature, called ‘Presence Sensing’, will allow a mac in standby mode to be aware of human presence close to it.
Essentially, combined with the faceID, this would enable your mac to start powering up as soon as it detects you’re close by and with the help of FaceID, you would have a powered up, unlocked computer waiting for you everytime you are near it.
In simpler words, you can set your mac to sleep more often, because it will essentially wake itself up when required without the user having to do anything, saving his time.
One thing to note is that this is only a patent as of now and Apple can simply choose to not pursue the idea immediately.
