WWDC 2023 was arguably Apple’s most exciting event during the Tim Cook era. There was an abundance of new technology on display, including a new Mac Pro and a 15-inch MacBook Air.
The highlight of the show, however, was the Apple Vision Pro headgear. The long-awaited device made its début at the event, and it did not disappoint, providing a variety of practical applications that previous VR headsets lacked.
All of this is made possible by a multitude of technological advancements. Apple claims to have filed over 5,000 headset-related patents, illustrating the overwhelming scope of the operation.
Vision Pro might revolutionize Apple’s other tech.
I believe that many of these innovations will migrate to other Apple products in the near future. This R1 microprocessor, which has been designed to efficiently manage data from multiple sensors, could be repurposed for use in modern automobiles.
Similarly, the micro-OLED display technology could improve the viewing experience on the iPhone and iPad, while advancements in Spatial Audio could transform the Airpods experience.
Optical ID is one feature of the Apple Vision Pro that I hope will be added to the iPhone lineup in the near future. The BBC fooled a Samsung Galaxy S8 with a digital camera and contact lens to prove that older phones’ retina scanning capabilities weren’t always excellent, but I believe this will be different.
To begin, this is Apple. Without sounding too much like a fanboy, their security is incredibly effective. Additionally, many years have passed since then, and the more advanced technology utilized here should be considerably more difficult to decrypt.
Adding this to iPhone would subsequently make those devices secure. Current Face ID is effective, but not flawless. The technology has been deceived by images or even individuals with similar appearances; for instance, siblings can sometimes gain access.
In a time when so much personal information is stored on our mobile devices – banking, messages, health information, and photographs – it is only appropriate to secure it as effectively as possible. I believe that Optical ID could be the most effective method for this.
