Social distance has been identified as the most important thing to prevent coronavirus, everyone is missing to hang out with friends and take selfies during the lockdown.
In such a situation, the tech giant Apple has found a solution that will maintain social distance with friends and also take selfies.
According to the details, Apple has granted a patent for software that allows it to artificially create group selfies or selfies with a close friend.
Through this software, the user will be able to edit any selfie, not only instant photos can be added to selfies, but also photos that are already in the gallery can be edited.
What’s special is that only the actual user will be able to change the group selfie, such as changing the position of another selfie or their own selfie.
However, the company has not yet given a final date on how long the software will be included in iPhones, laptops and iPads.
Apple is also working on introducing a new Face ID feature that will allow users to unlock their iPhone without removing the face mask.
This feature is currently available in the beta version of iOS 13.5.
The iPhone will be able to identify the user despite the face mask, through a pass-code the entry screen will appear when swiping up at the bottom of the screen, after which the device will not search the user’s face.
The iPhone cannot be unlocked without removing the mask, but the passcode unlock option will replace it.
Most beta versions have a number of features that are not part of the final version, but this new feature will definitely be introduced because the coronavirus pandemic is likely to continue for several months.
This new operating system version also introduces Apple’s Contact Tracing API, which will help users identify people who have been confirmed to be infected with the Coronavirus.
