iPhone features that MacBooks should ‘learn’

Many people are used to the convenience that the iPhone brings and “wish” one day these features will appear on the MacBook.

Connectivity 5G

Apple has never offered cellular connectivity with any of its Mac products. The only wireless connections on the MacBook are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. While the iPhone can share the network with the MacBook, it is often much slower and less convenient than the built-in cellular network.

With the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro versions, Apple touts them as the most professional laptops, many hoping it can have 5G connectivity. But unfortunately that didn’t happen.

Analysts predict that Apple’s wireless chips could appear in 2023. Apple bought Intel’s modem business more than two years ago. Right before this deal, Apple and Qualcomm signed a patent license agreement with a term of 6 years. However, most likely this will have nothing to do with Apple launching a new wireless chip on the MacBook.

TrueDepth Camera

TrueDepth camera helps iPhone to accurately recognize each facial gesture.

The 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros and 24-inch iMacs are equipped with a 1080p FaceTime camera, which is a significant improvement over the 720p FaceTime camera Apple has been using for a long time, but it still doesn’t seem to be enough.

Apple can do even better by using the TrueDepth camera on the MacBook, which combines a 12MP, f/2.2, 23mm lens with a 3D sensor to support biometric security.

Apple doesn’t have to do this on all Macs, just for the professional models. The use of 12MP FaceTime camera on MacBook Pro enhances the user experience in many typical areas such as online meetings.

Center Stage

Center Stage is a new feature from Apple that automatically zooms the camera during a video call to adjust the subject to always stay in the frame even when you move. It can zoom in when there is only one person on the camera or zoom out when there are many people.

In fact, this is a feature used on the iPad instead of the iPhone, but either way, it’s a great idea to support online meetings that should be on the MacBook.

Face ID

Face ID (Face ID) is a feature related to the front camera. With the 24-inch iMac and Magic keyboard with Touch ID, fingerprint sensors have become ubiquitous on Mac computers. It’s a nifty feature since fingerprint scanning is much easier and more secure than entering a complicated password, but Face ID takes it a step further.

Imagine that the task you’re performing requires authentication, and the MacBook performs the Face ID check so quickly that you barely notice it. Apple does not need to remove Touch ID, users can choose one of two methods. Like the TrueDepth camera above, Apple may limit Face ID to professional Macs to help differentiate it from the regular ones.

Touch screen

Application developers tend to use the professional Mac line, so the touchscreen interface could be introduced in the iMac Pro and eventually make its way to the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros.

The touch screen on the MacBook could be a big opportunity for Apple, but it’s highly unlikely that this will happen. The company has been adamant that the technology is not in the plans for the MacBook.

In the past, Apple has stated that technology and user needs are constantly changing, and Apple is always ready to keep up with that. We haven’t heard much about Apple’s touchscreen development yet, so if this happens in 2022 it could be the biggest secret Apple has revealed yet.
