Biometric deadbeats are coming to smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices, and they’ll be able to do things no other biometric device can, including the fingerprint reader that’s already on sale for Android Wear devices.
It’s not clear whether the new biometric reader will be included with the Apple Watch, but the company has made it clear that it’s interested in adding more features to the existing platform.
Apple has previously stated that it plans to have an open platform for biometric biometric identification by the end of the year.
The company has also said it plans “major announcements” on the topic, and AppleInsider reports that Apple is planning to unveil new biometrically-integrated products in the coming months.
That means we may be looking at biometric authentication in wearable devices like Apple Watch Sport, which was recently revealed to have a fingerprint reader built-in, and its Watch Sport 2, which is expected to have support for biometrin recognition.
