Lytro

Back in early 2011, the late Apple founder Steve Jobs met with the company Lytro. He became interested in the technology that was used in the chambers of the company, and expressed a desire to implement these revolutionary developments in the chamber iPhone. It took a little less than three years – and a dream come true Steve.

At the U.S. Patent Office website has a description of the invention in which Apple says about the method of “digital camera adapter mode refocusing.” The essence of technology is that the user will be able to focus the image, not only in the process of shooting, but during processing a finished photograph.

First there was a function in the cells Lytro (pictured above), which went on sale last year. The camera lens is composed of several microlenses installed before the matrix that allows the camera to determine not only the incidence of light, but also its intensity, and the position and angle. Capturing this data, the camera can then emulate various focusing modes during postprocessing.

Hardly expect the emergence of such technologies in the next generation iPhone, because the size of the camera while compact enough to be installed in a mobile phone. Hopefully, we will not have to wait for the iPhone 10 to be able to play with a focus on the finished picture.
