Apple could be taking things to a whole new level with the technology they plan to implement into the next iPhone.

According to the Apple Insider, Apple is working on the new patent that will be using face detection and recognition for personal computing device control. In other words, this advanced technology will allow you to unlock your iPhone by having your face scanned. Meanwhile, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration plans to study the privacy implications of this new Apple technology.

We guess we have to wait and see.
