Apple could be targeting the Apple iPhone 6 to debut Lytro style photography for the rear snapper on the phone. The Cupertino based tech giant just received a patent, No. 8,593,564, for a "digital camera including refocusable imaging mode adaptor". This will allow the user to take a picture at a certain resolution and refocus the picture after it is snapped. While the title of the patent mentions a digital camera, the patent makes it clear that it is a system that could be used on an iPhone.Apple's late co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs was reported to be keenly interested in the technology and invited the inventor of the Lytro to visit his home for a private demonstration before the technology went public. Lytro does have an app in the Apple App Store and Nokia recently introduced a feature called Refocus for its PureView camera equipped phones. The patent was filed by Apple in 2011.Lytro is listed as prior art in Apple's patent application, but the tech titan says improvements can be … [Read more...] about Apple patents Lytro style technology; will it be used in the next iPhone?

Quit being such a downer on WP.. It really makes you look sad.. 44. johnbftl (Posts: 281; Member since: 09 Jun 2012) Where in this article does it say hardware buddy? It's impossible for hardware to do that. Try refocusing with a 35mm film camera after you've taken the image. What it is doing is essentially capturing a video or a burst of photos until you hit the capture button. It shows the image taken at the … [Read more...] about Comments for : Apple patents Lytro style technology; will it be used in the next iPhone?
Apple is rumored to launch a surprise OLED iPhone with curved display this year, in addition to the more orthodox iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, or whatever they get named. The selling point of the OLED iPhone is allegedly an edge-to-edge display which would bring the phone's screen-to-body ratio to unseen heights.So far so good, we even know that Samsung will be the chief supplier of flexible OLED panels for the phone, but what about the "all-screen," "edge-to-edge" part of the story? At the top bezel area of today's phones, we are used to seeing plenty of indispensable components nesting comfortably - the earpiece slit, the front camera, the light and proximity sensors, the notification blinker, and even LED flashes or iris scanners. Where will those go if there is no, or a very minimal top bezel?Well, the recently announced Xiaomi Mi Mix holds a clue - it fits a 6.4" panel in a body more akin to a 5.7" phone by placing the tiniest selfie snapper that could be found at the bottom, using … [Read more...] about Apple patents a unique approach to a truly ‘edge-to-edge’ iPhone: tiny display holes
A jury in the second Federal patent trial between Apple and Samsung, concluded that the latter did infringe on at least one Apple patent. But unlike the verdict in the first case, which ended up with Apple awarded nearly $930 million following a second jury trial related to the damages awarded, the jury on Friday concluded that Samsung must pay Apple the much smaller figure of $119.6 million. Most experts had expected a higher damages total considering that the devices involved in this case were more current than the ones involved in the first trial.The jury concluded that Samsung infringed on Apple's '647 data tapping patent, which deals with saving data on your device, and then calling it up and using it later. The jury also ruled that Samsung did not infringe on the '959 patent or '414 patent. The latter deals with syncing data. The infamous '721 "slide-to-unlock" patent, was found to have been infringed on by some Samsung devices, like the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. The jury also … [Read more...] about Jury: Samsung infringed on at least one Apple patent; Apple awarded $119.6 million
