FINALLY! MacBook set to get the feature everyone's been waiting for

Since Apple revealed a move to its own custom-made silicon during its WWDC conference last month, rumours have been rife about what powerful new capabilities could end up hitting the MacBook. And if a new leak is to be believed, one of the most useful features from the iPad Pro could soon be hitting the Mac.

Code spotted inside the latest beta of MacOS Big Sur (due for release this year) suggests Apple could be planning to bring Face ID to the Mac. This would allow users to unlock the machine using the camera instead of relying on Touch ID. It's already our best laptop for graphic design, but the extra convenience could make the MacBook Pro even more of a winner.
