The camera on your future iPhone or iPad could house two sensors, helping you snap higher-quality photos and videos. It is possible because Apple has been granted some patents by the US Patent and Trademark office on Tuesday. |
The first is a dual sensor image processing patent which looks to improve on the quality of images by processing data from multiple sensors in order to reduce photographic anomalies. Various techniques are provided for processing image data acquired using a digital image sensor. In accordance with aspects of the present disclosure, one such technique may relate to the processing of image data in a system that supports multiple image sensors. In one embodiment, the image processing system may include control circuitry configured to determine whether a device is operating in a single sensor mode (one active sensor) or a dual sensor mode (two active sensors). When operating in the single sensor mode, data may be provided directly to a front-end pixel processing unit from the sensor interface of the active sensor. When operating in a dual sensor mode, the image frames from the first and second sensors are provided to the front-end pixel processing unit in an interleaved manner. For instance, in one embodiment, the image frames from the first and second sensors are written to a memory, and then read out to the front-end pixel processing unit in an interleaved manner. This sounds a little confused but it can yield better photos.
Dual-sensor cameras are nothing new. But Apple's patent envisions them for mobile phones, tablets, and even desktop and laptop computers.
The second is Callers waiting on hold for you via your iPhone may be a bit less bored if a new Apple patent ever sees reality.
The technology would first allow you to set which, if any, content items you wish to share with your callers. It would determine if and when a caller is placed on hold. Your caller would then see a list of items enabled for sharing and choose one from among them.
You could even customize which items are available for certain callers. For example, you might want to share only songs with strangers but share everything with family and friends.
There is at least one caveat. Sharing bandwidth-heavy content such as videos would surely eat up the cellular data allowance for both you and your callers. So, you'd have to be careful just what you share.
Apple develops fast and great so its products are becoming amazing. This makes more and more users want to buy an iPhone and enjoy what Apple said. You can do a lot of things by an iPhone and iPad. I really like taking photos and watching movies. So I like the new patent and I installed a bluray media player to make my photo convenient to watch movies.
