From the Economic Times: Apple is developing a software that will restrict iPhone users from recording a live concert or sporting event. The software will ensure that an iPhone, while trying to record an event, triggers the infra-red sensors installed at the venue. These sensors would then automatically instruct the iPhone to shut down its camera function, preventing any footage from being recorded, reports the Daily Mail. However, while only the phone’s camera would be temporarily disabled, other features, such as texting and making calls, would still work.
Is this to protect the rights of the concert promoters, artists and media companies… or just a way to deal with the morons holding up their cameras for 2 hours?
