It is being reported that Apple TV is going to have a resurrection from the depths of the abyss in the near future. Recently a patent was taken out that would allow you to effortlessly log into your Apple TV by simply using your biometric data such as a fingerprint.
It is believed that the patent was taken out by Apple to further increase sales of the TV set top box – amid droves of rivals joining the TV setup box party. This would make it easier for many people to access files, if they fail to recall their login information.
You can see an outline of the Apple TV patent below.
We all at some stage forget a username or password from time to time. So it is not farfetched that this technology would eventually be implemented into the Apple TV device. The biometric fingerprint technology already exists on many of the latest iPhone devices.
There is still the problem that Netflix and other options such as BT TV with their YouView box could cause complications to Apple TV truly becoming the main event choice for consumers in the future.
