It is now an inseparable feature of the iPhone and the iPad Pro. The Face ID facial recognition system is so well installed that Apple could soon deploy it on Mac, at the same time as 5G.
The company is the subject of a lawsuit in a Texas court for patent infringements by an inventor. In detail, he estimates that the Apple brand has used five of its technologies including Face ID, facial image recognition, optical image stabilization, and smart HDR.
The complainant and Apple have worked together in the past
Concretely, Gesture Technology Partners, LLC, of Timothy Pryor asks the court to recognize the guilt of the Cupertino company as well as the payment of damages. He also wants the company to reimburse him for various legal costs.
According to the complaint filed, the man is no stranger to Apple since they worked together and the company bought his portfolio of “multi-touch” patents from him in 2010.
As a reminder, this trial is nothing exceptional for Apple, which is regularly the subject of legal proceedings. For example, we told you last December about this legal action by the company AliveCor against the apple brand. The plaintiffs claim that the Apple Watch’s ECG function infringes three of its patents.
