It is possible that future iPhones may have sensors that detect temperature. Apple has been working on camera technology that would enable an iPhone picture to be analyze. In order to identify the temperature of the item shot, according to the company.
Typically, Apple Watch is the product that is most closely link with the company’s good health goals.
According to AppleInsider, a recently disclosed patent application demonstrates that gadgets like the iPhone and, possibly, the iPad. Might play a part in monitoring a user’s health, according to the publication.
It is the measurement of any object’s temperature that is the subject of the patent application “Camera attachment. And image data processing for temperature measurement”. Apple, on the other hand, provides just a few examples of its application. And the ones it does provide are all about “monitoring body temperature,” and doing so on an iPhone.
As stated in the patent application, “Given the ubiquitous nature of smartphones, the [proposed] attachment may be utilized to turn a smartphone into a temperature measuring device in order to give easily available temperature readings.”
As the document said, “in other implementations, the attachment is a passive attachment (i.e., it does not include electronics or need a power source), which may decrease manufacturing costs and improve availability.”
The attachment mentioned in the text and shown in the pictures seems to be akin to Olloclip lens systems. Instead of becoming a permanent component of the iPhone’s camera. The attachment is to be briefly add when a user wishes to monitor the temperature of anything.
Continuing the patent application, “a camera attachment [may be] provided that comprises a frame that is designed to couple with a camera,” the patent application states.
According to the study, the frame would be more than just a means of attaching a lens; it would also be an integral component of the whole measuring process.
