Apple Patents New Image Recognition Device Lock

Apple has filed a new patent application to cover a proposed method of unlocking digital devices using image identification.  The process would work by displaying an image or images from a user’s library and using either text or voice input, having the user identify the subject of the image exactly based on previous input.  This could be adapted into a highly secure method of device locking with the use of multiple images and highly specific identifier keywords, and could be a draw for security conscious users.
