This patent was credited to three inventors, Pierre Olivier Martel, Arthur Mesh and Wade Benson. Among his many patents listed above is one related to multi-user access to data containers on one device. The new patent is far from Apple’s first multi-user study on iOS devices. Since 2013, it has applied for comprehensive patents on multiple users of the same Touch ID-enabled device.
However, if this feature is truly supported by Apple, it seems the company has been a bit slow this time, as Android phones have supported multi-user experiences since early 2019.
