HomePod代码显示:iPhone 8面部识别技术或可支持

最近泄露的HomePod固件代码表明,苹果iPhone 8将把面部识别技术整合到Apple Pay中。代码显示,苹果公司即将推出的面部识别系统比Touch ID更快更安全,它可以在几百毫秒内解锁iPhone,同时,将比指纹扫描获得更多的数据点。而且该项技术极有可能向第三方应用程序开放,就像Touch ID一样。

日前,iOS开发人员Daniel Niyazov在Twitter上发布了“com.apple.passbook.payment”的代码,其中包括两个专门用于付款验证的代码“pearl.field-detect”和“pearl.pre-arm”。“珍珠”(pearl)被认为是苹果iPhone 8的面部识别功能的代码名称,曾经出现在与苹果支付相关的演示文稿中。

Daniel Niyazov对HomePod的有效载荷进行了搜索,并提出了两条特别有趣的“珍珠”代码参考信息,它们都与专门用于Passbook支付和Apple Pay的固件有关。虽然这两种代码的确切性质还不清楚,但代码显示评估确实有意愿利用面部识别技术作为Apple Pay过程的一部分,特别是其中之一代表着一种识别用户面部表情的方法,可能有助于快速打开Apple Pay界面。

尽管新技术的出现令人振奋,但这一代码并没有显示苹果计划仅依靠面部识别技术来完成Apple Pay的身份验证。有业内人士认为,苹果可以借助“iPhone 8”从Touch ID全面过渡到面部识别功能。

虽然HomePod固件为我们提供了一些关于iPhone 8所期望的细节,但重要的是不要过分解读模糊的代码,并对现有的功能做太多的假设。例如,“BackPearl”可以为正面和后置摄像头提供面部识别功能,但它可能完全是另一回事,同样的情况也适用于多生物识别和现代HDR。

苹果公司的软件泄露继续让外界对该公司尚未发布的手机产生最好的预期。今天早些时候,外泄的HomePod固件代码暗示新机器具备学习功能,可以让iPhone的摄像头实时识别物体和场景。这个名为SmartCam的功能似乎可以根据检测到的对象调整图像设置。代码中含有婴儿、烟花、宠物、天空、雪、体育、日落等字样。

Recent iPhone 8 rumors have suggested Apple may be planning to replace Touch ID with a new facial recognition system, but there's been a lot of question about how Apple Pay will work and whether Apple will indeed be able to eliminate Touch ID entirely.

We've already seen confirmation that Apple is working on facial recognition in the iPhone 8 through a recent HomePod firmware release, and now additional information found in the code confirms Apple has a mechanism for authenticating Touch ID payments with a face scan instead of through a fingerprint.

A com.apple.passbook.payment string found in the HomePod firmware by iOS developer @r_idn features two references to "pearl.field-detect" and "pearl.pre-arm" among other payment verification data. As we learned from earlier leaks, "pearl" refers to Pearl ID, the codename for Apple's facial recognition system. Apple's current implementation appears to be incomplete, as pearl is only mentioned under presentation and not authentication.

While many are skeptical that Touch ID can be replaced by a facial recognition system that's equally secure, rumors have suggested Apple's facial recognition technique captures more data points than a fingerprint scan, making it more secure than Touch ID.

It's not yet clear how Apple Pay will work without a Home button and without a fingerprint, but it will presumably be able to authenticate by scanning a user's face, with a payment completed via a finger on the screen as is the case in current iPhones.

Previous HomePod firmware leaks related to the iPhone 8 have suggested Apple has not implemented an under-display Touch ID solution as was initially rumored for the device, and it's looking more and more like there's no other physical Touch ID solution built into the upcoming smartphone.
