When will Macs get better FaceTime Cameras? They're inferior to the cameras on the iPhones

    It's been crossing my mind but I find it funny that the cameras on our iPhones are miles ahead of the ones that come with our MacBooks and iMacs. You would think that the cameras would be on par or even better on the Macs because they have more room to work with.

    I really hope the next updates to their computer line up will introduce better FaceTime cameras. That will support FaceID, memoji's, etc.

    I don't think it will be too long, for I have an iMac Pro that has a pretty good FaceTime Camera.

    I doubt it's remotely as good as the ones on the new iPhone Xs. I'm really looking for FaceID and memoji support. The same technology that they're using on the latest iPhone's camera with the true depth feature.

    I guess. Apple values more in iPhones/tablets than Mac's when it comes to cameras ? Since these are HD camera, it would be 720p.. That's probably enough.

    More people would take selfies using a phone or tablet (yuk), than a mac, so that's where the money goes to.

    Face ID is a "toy" feature?
