Future Apple iPhones may auto-adjust based on surroundings

Washington, Sept. 19 (ANI): Apple has reportedly patented technology for its iPhones which would allow users to make hardware and software adjustments based on what the company calls 'life events.

Apple's patent, reads familiar to Motorola's patent for MotoX devices, allowing user to control their gadget through gestures and pre-fed information.

The new Apple technology would allow users to alter their iPhones' 'mode of operation' depending on their location, environment, an event in their calendar or breaking news item, Discovery News reports.

The patent categorizes the 'life events' as mandatory and permissible and the iPhone would be able to perform certain tasks independently in both the modes, like changing the ringer volume, managing software and powering up the device.

According to the report, mandatory mode would place limits based on certain preset settings such as parental restriction on mobile usage, while permissible mode is comparatively less restrictive and provides optional changes to be chosen from. (ANI)
