Apple Can Remotely Disable iPhone Cameras

Apple Can Remotely Disable iPhone Cameras

Apple recently obtained a new patent “Systems and methods for receiving infrared data with a camera designed to detect images based on visible light”, which allows iPhone cameras to be disabled via special infrared sensors. In this case, concert venues will be able to use the technology to make sure no one makes bootleg videos of a touring band. The same technology could also be used to beam information to many people’s phones at the same time when they’re in the same location.


Industry observers admit that filming of concerts is not just an annoyance to musicians who normally ask their fans to put their devices away at concerts. It is also a big problem for artists willing to play unreleased songs live and facing the prospect of them appearing on YouTube prior the official release.

When Apple first filed for this patent 7 years ago, freedom of expression advocates were concerned about the idea: if the manufacturer creates a way for 3rd parties to control when certain iPhone features work, how can it also control who has access to that technology? The suggestion is that some dictatorship governments can use it to blackout social media coverage of a protest.

You're aware a camera is for video and a microphone is for sound? Or that people recorded concerts using audio recorders long before smart phones existed.

Musicians and actors (at plays) want people to put their phones away primarily because they are annoying and distracting.

No avatarTurning them off isn't 1/100000000 as bad as turning them on. That being said, when you open up the code, you open it up to hackers as well!!! What if a terrorist blew up a building and a witness with an iphone tried to get whoever on camera but couldn't. All because the terrorist had a device that disabled all iphone cameras within a half a mile...

1BigChief avatarI will gladly stick to the best and most secured device and platform which is BlackBerry 10 devices and Os. And if i did choose to use an Android device it would be a BlackBerry PRIV running DTEK by BlackBerry with monthly secured updates, or the upcoming Rome or Hamburgh devices slated to run Analdroid
