-Home Button to 2017 disappear
patent for registering iPhone thieves
Apple’s new generation iPhone is yet to be presented, however, which holds not depend on already to sound developments for the model next year out. Anonymous understood, after all it is indeed information that not even intended to the public. For this year, there will be in Japan the integration of FeliCa chips, these can be used to pay for access to public transportation. For us less interesting, but Bloomberg mentioned in the report again the vanishing Home button. This is namely the 2017er model used (such as the FeliCa chip also, if it does not work out this year) coming, the hardware upgrade, which should also yield an OLED display.
Further speculation there by a new patent from Apple . It describes the inclusion of biometric data in case of theft. A potential thief would so directly provide fingerprints and photos and other features such as the location or data from other sensors. If unauthorized access detected, this information is stored, can also be transmitted to a server. Such a function would not legally so entirely without, one can assume that it is not as fast – if at all – once will be available in iOS.
However, there are already apps like Lookout, which offer a similar function, but without the link to a fingerprint. Quite so absurd that is not so. With the activation lock Apple undertook in the past measures against theft. A thief can not so readily reset a stolen iPhone, Google has such an activation barrier now available for Android. Any measure that makes a smartphone under its uninteresting for thieves, the user should however rather look forward.Viewing:-63
