Some artists do not like the anyway and it should be people who are following the entire concert on your smartphone screen. Whether the technology is really used for, remains uncertain. But it is also conceivable for other uses, for example in sensitive areas of companies or in public areas.

Apple’s patent is not brand new.. Application has been made at the time of iPhone 4 and now approved. In the version Apple calls basically concerts as possible use or even museums. A transmitter then turns off the function of the camera. Whether it ever manages the patent in practical use, probably at present only know Apple – although many self-proclaimed experts oracles now why the patent will come or may not
