Apple has a new infrared patent

- Saturday, July 16, 2016

Recently Apple received approval for a patent on technology which can allow them to disable the camera in your phone with an infrared signal.  This technology could stop people from creating videos at concerts, or at the movies.  The patent describes how the infrared signal can be directed to only work in the areas where photography is prohibited. For instance, when at a concert the signal would disable your camera when you try to take pictures or videos toward the stage, but when you take a picture of your friend next to you in the crowd it wouldn't.
