Sources indicate that Apple has recently been in the process of getting a new patent.These patents indicate about the iPhone 8 features. The patent is for a facial recognition app. The app allows you to lock or unlock your phone with just using your face. It can be possible by using the front camera. Once the camera detects an authorized person’s face, and if the phone is moving, it will unlock itself. If the phone lays steady for a duration of time, without the user in front of it, it locks itself. This whole process eliminates the need for the user even to touch the phone or say a word.
