New iPhone 5S May Feature Apple's Smart Pen Technology
The purported new iPhone 5S may possibly feature a Smart Pen technology that is similar to that of the S-Pen stylus of Samsung Galaxy Note 2. This new Apple Smart Pen technology may be used by the company for its future iPhone models, according to the newest buzz and latest rumors.
Apple has reportedly filed a patent for three super rich smart pen inventions in which the company may possibly use on the new iPhone 5S or the iPhone 6, according to the latest rumor. This new buzz suggests that Apple may make use of the company's new stylus orientation detection, identifiable stylus and intelligent stylus technology for its next-generation iPhone versions.
When applied on the iPhone 5S, the Apple stylus technology can be used to improve the device's touch and hover-sensing functionality, as well as preserve its power-saving capability. The device's stylus may have a built-in orientation sensor that is able to open a user's favorite app. The Apple Smart Pen may also include an accelerometer that can turn the device on or off automatically depending on the movement of the stylus.
In addition, the Apple Smart Pen may include a retractable tip that is similar to a click pen. The pen could switch via a touch sensitive ring around the pen into a camera and/or scanner device that could read bar codes. Plus, the Smart Pen will allow the user to record a specific gesture motion that will act as the Smart Pen's password.
Apple's Smart Pen could also be a pencil with real lead and may also work as a brush when you replace the tip with bristles that can also function as sensors. It seems like Apple is back in innovation with their Smart Pen technology. If and when Apple actually uses this new type of technology on the purported iPhone 5S and/or iPhone 6, as well as the iPad 5 still remains to be seen. Enjoy folks!
