Faceshift May Have Been Acquired By Apple

Faceshift Ag may have been acquired by Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) in recent weeks, MacRumors believes. Faceshift has clearly been acquired by another company in recent weeks, as noted in a Swiss company registry filing from August 19, 2015 showing the three original corporate directors having stepped down as of August 14, 2015 and being replaced by Baker & McKenzie mergers and acquisitions attorney Martin Frey. Frey does not appear to have any direct links with Apple, but Apple has frequently used Baker & McKenzie's services in a number of countries around the world, including management of some of Apple's Swiss trademarks. MacRumors contacted several people in position to know about Faceshift's fate to ask if they could confirm whether Apple has acquired Faceshift, and while none were willing to offer outright confirmation, no denials were received and in one case received confirmation of Apple's current interest in face-tracking technology. Apple did not respond to request for comment on the possible acquisition.
