FaceTime on iPad and iPod touch to use email to connect

FaceTime email

currently establishes a connection on the using your phone number as a means to authenticate. This is a problem for Wi-Fi iPads and the iPod touch, since they don’t have a cell service to verify who you are. However, that isn’t gonna stop Apple from bringing FaceTime to those devices. BGR has a couple of images showing that Apple will likely use your Apple ID—the email address you use when you register Apple products—as the means of authentication on those devices. From there, you’d get a push notification whenever someone wanted to have a FaceTime chat with you. Works for us, but of course, we likely won’t find out any more about this until September, when Apple introduces the next iPod touch. One more image after the break.
