Face Detection API in iOS 5

Posted on July 26, 2011 by

Mark Gurman at 9to5Mac has discovered that Apple has added face detection API in iOS 5. The face detection technology is similar to the iPhoto’s Faces feature and the advanced PhotoBooth effects in OS X Lion.

We have taken a look at these iOS 5-exclusive APIs and they are highly sophisticated. The first, called CIFaceFeature, can determine through an image where a person’s mouth and eyes are located. The second API, CIDetector, is a resource within the operating system that processes images for face detection.
