Apple patents iPhone camera remote: possible iWatch feature?
Taking photos is one of Apple’s main selling points for its iPhone line-up. We can’t deny that ever since the launch of Apple’s old iPhone 4, this has garnered a certain level of positive fame for Cupertino. It’s only logical that Apple will search for additional usage scenarios for the iPhone’s camera because of this, and new patents point to some ideas that may come.
Apple has just patented an iPhone camera remote, which is straight forward in its functionality. It connects though Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to an iPhone or iPod Touch and allows you to control all the camera features remotely in case you want a smarter selfie. The question that has us all wondering about this patent, is what device is Apple planning to use for this. The patent isn’t specific as to what device will be able to do this, but we doubt that Apple will launch a camera remote device.
Could it be that this is just one of the features we’ll see on the iWatch? It would make sense to have your smart watch help you take photos, so let’s see how these rumors develop. Obviously Apple is never specific as to which devices will be used, so this is just speculation.
