Apple is finally working on a feature that Android phones had for years

In a patent, the company even refers to both “single-user and desktop computers and desktop computers.”

It looks like Apple is finally working on a feature that has been around on Android smartphones for years. The company has been granted a new patent called “Provision of domains in a secure environment to support multiple users.” This means that the iPhone maker is developing secure enclave technology that can allow multiple users to share one iPhone or iPad, without disclosing their personal information to other users. In short, it means support for multiple user accounts on iOS.

The patent does not specifically address iOS or another version of the OS, reports Appleinsider.

In a patent, the company even refers to both “single-user and desktop computers and desktop computers.”

It is important to note that MacOS already has the support of many users. However, a patent may indicate that this feature is likely to be present in iPhones.

“A computer machine can use multiple passcode and corresponding encryption keys, where multiple passcodes, or encryption keys may be associated with a different user account in the system,” says the patent.

From the patent, it looks like Apple is trying to solve a problem where every user will need to have personal information, from login to secure Apple Pay data, while using certain features shared as a web browser.

Apple also talked about the Secure Enclave Processor or SEP, which looks like a future version of the T2 security chip we get on Mac devices. And this processor could appear on iPhones in the future.

And what it means is that tech can deliberately slow down the process of accessing many failed logon attempts, after which you often log out.

“Password error may be allowed on other single-user computers, such as smartphone or tablet devices,” he said, “to reduce the amount an unauthorized user may try to enter incorrect login codes.”

The patent states that “the pass rate for a passcode can be doubled after a predetermined amount of improper verification efforts.” The advantages of this can be that it can prevent accidental locking and can frustrate a dangerous attacker while attacking a powerful passcode.
