Where is Face ID for the Mac? Inquiring minds want to know. Wil explains:
Face ID is so cool, so advanced, and of sufficient functional differentiation from other Apple products when compared to the competition that Apple can charge more by limiting Face ID to the premium models.
That’s how it works for iPhone and iPad Pro.
MacBook, MacBook Pro, and desktop iMacs are due for an upgrade (I would expect them next year) so we can anticipate Face ID to show up in the more expensive iMac models and MacBook Pro at a later date. I’m on record for this: “No new Mac for me until it has Face ID.” If Apple wants to differentiate premium models vs. entry-level models via Face ID vs. Touch ID, that’s OK by me but no Apple Pay credit card cha ching until the Mac gets Face ID.
