When the last MacBook was released in 2020, it blew a storm in the market as it housed the new and better Apple M1 Silicon Chipset. This new processor was capable of:
- Delivering better performance at low power consumption.
- Worked better under a high workload.
- Could run high-end software with ease.
- Had better flexibility and compatibility with other operating systems.
- Was a tad bit cheaper.
So, during the first few months, post-release people were throwing themselves over the new device. But, its craze went down as fast as it began. But, Why?
According to most web-based Tech Geeks, the new MacBook 13 variant had no significant upgrade except the new processor. It had the same metal body, the same aluminum chassis, the same hardware, and it looked the same too. But, with the advent of the second half of 2021 and 2022 Apple is trying its level best to bounce back and give the audience a new surprise.
What is this new surprise?
Multiple sources have confirmed that the new MacBook series 14 could finally come with Face ID technology. This new innovation will provide an added level of security for all Mac devices and will also pave the way for more innovations in the future.

Apple itself has not made anything clear about the whole situation but, they are in talks to introduce the new Face ID features in their new-gen MacBooks. On paper, the Face ID technology is better than conventional methods of security as:
- Unlike fingerprint and voice recognition a human face has multiple unique points that are hard to replicate.
- Face ID is fast & automatic and does not require any new hardware to function.
- Face ID is really popular among people, so it could also boost the sales of new MacBooks.
- Keyless authentication is safer as there is no chance of user data getting leaked from any source.
But, if we look closely Face ID methods too suffers from some setbacks, like:
- Face ID is easy to break into and most Face ID technology we see today is not efficient enough.
- Introducing Face ID means Apple will not have to install a better camera module on the MacBook, this will bring the production costs up.
So, Apple will no doubt have to work very hard to introduce a better Face ID technology that will meet the demands of its customers.
According to sources, Apple already had plans to introduce the Face ID feature in MacBook 13 but this idea was ultimately called off as Apple felt there was more need for a faster processor than a new unlocking mechanism.
Over the years the competitors of Apple have made tremendous progress in introducing new device unlocking techniques. Windows, their biggest software competitor in the market already has an inbuilt Face ID feature called - Windows Hello, which works just fine. So, it is high time for Apple to step up its game and introduce the new Face ID. As this might be the best time to do so.
Will Face ID Technology change the way MacBooks look?
When Apple launched Face ID for iPhone X back in 2017 the whole physical attributes of iPhones were subjected to massive reboot. iPhones right now have a fairly large top bezel to house all important sensors that allow face ID to work.
But, the same thing might not be noticed for MacBooks, as we have already seen companies like HP and Dell have integrated Face ID in their devices without altering the size of the web-cam thus, there will not be any noticeable change in the design of a MacBook.
