We’ll likely have to wait a while before Face ID arrives on Mac computers, seeing as the current available models don’t come with TrueDepth cameras. Further, Macs must make the switch from Intel’s chips to Apple’s processors first. One of the technologies that power Face ID is Neural Engine, a dedicated neural network hardware in its A11 Bionic chip that also enable Animoji and other machine learning tasks.

The tech giant expects the transition to take around two years. All products recommended by Engadget are selected by our editorial team, independent of our parent company.
