[Mobile China News] Tianyancha App shows that on September 12, Apple’s patent application for “Vein Matching for Difficult Biometric Authentication Situations” was authorized.
The abstract shows that the patent can use subepidermal imaging of the face to assess subepidermal features, such as blood vessels and veins, when the device authenticates the user in facial recognition. During the authentication process, when a user’s face is identified as an authorized user with less certainty, the patent could use an assessment of subepidermal features to differentiate between users with closely related facial features, such as siblings or twins.
In addition, Apple is studying a variety of under-screen Face ID solutions. One of the patents describes: Electronic devices represented by the iPhone can contain multiple sensors in multiple non-pixel regions, each This non-pixel area removes thin film transistors and other display components, allowing light to pass through and increasing screen-to-sensor transmittance.
According to a list published by the United States Trademark and Patent Office (USPTO), Apple recently obtained a technology patent called “Cover Layer Detection of Touch Input Devices”, which can detect whether there is a film on the iPhone or iPad screen, and then pass it through Motion compensation improves interaction.
Apple is a company with a lot of patents. According to statistics in 2021, Apple has obtained 530 invention patents from the Chinese Bureau, and is the organization with the 97th largest number of patent authorizations from the Chinese Bureau. Judging from the number of patents, Apple’s key technical areas are: wireless communication networks, digital information transmission, computer interfaces, broadcasting and telephones, and communication transmission systems.
