I can confirm reports that HomePod’s firmware reveals the existence of upcoming iPhone’s infra-red face unlock in BiometricKit and elsewhere

The codename for the face recognition feature is "Pearl ID". Codename for the bezel-less phone is "D22"

Now the interesting thing will be if the face unlock and touchid are available in a single device

Reminder of the code Hamza found when he found Touch ID in the biometrickit accessibillity bundle iirc back in iOS 7 beta 4 days...

It’s really the flashy thing from men in black, so we won’t remember this in a few minutes anyway…

Is there not a decent enough facial recognition library to whip together a FaceID tweak?

Does “neither touchID nor pearlID” confirm that one device has both?

sounds like a device just needs to have either (but not both) to be considered biometric ID-capable
