Apple Is Deliberately Slowing Down Your iPhone



In a move that’s sure to raise a few eyebrows, Apple has been granted a patent which will allow it to develop technology preventing iPhones from taking photos at concerts or sensitive locations.

The tech giant believes that this is a solution to audiences using cameras to snap endless photos and videos at concerts as opposed to enjoying the performance.

The patent states that the technology will work by disabling an iPhone camera via transmitted infrared signals in the surrounds. These signals are picked up by the smartphone where they are then converted into a command that blocks the camera’s functions.

The patent specifically states:

For example, an infrared emitter can be located in areas where picture or video capture is prohibited, and the emitter can generate infrared signals with encoded data that includes commands to disable the recording functions of devices. An electronic device can then receive the infrared signals, decode the data and temporarily disable the device’s recording function based on the command.

There are no doubt ramifications for this type of technology with the public already voicing concerns over the potential exploitation by authorities who want to block protests or evidence of abuse of power. On the legal front it could also help film studios fight piracy by stopping people from recording in movie theatres. Where exactly this technology can be implemented appears to be the underlying issue here.

No official word has been released from Apple yet but as a positive development, it can also be used for education. Tourists wondering around a landmark can pick up local infrared signals before it turns into details of the location they’re taking snaps of.

Here’s hoping the Cupertino tech giant has the public’s interest at heart.
