Apple Facial Recognition Feature to Lock and Unlock iPhone appears in Patent Application

Apple tries to patent facial recognition solution for unlocking and locking of Apple devices.

In the future you will look at your iPhone and it will unlock. This is what Apple has filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office according to AppleInsider. Facial recognition as pass-code replacement is nothing new. Apple's proposed solution is though the best way to do it. You do not have to activate the device. You just look at it. If your face is there your iPhone unlocks. If you face goes away, the iPhone locks. The camera would permanently look for you. Sensors would support the camera to identify the situations when there is actually a face appears.

Google got already a patent on a similar facial recognition solution recently.
