It seems Apple is going on a rampage with a flurry of new inventions that is nothing short of a technological marvel. Latest on the list is the 2mm long camera. Yes, that is right, Apple has filed for a patent right for its new discovery, which it claims to use in the Apple devices. However, the Apple officials dint exactly reveal which Apply device would the new tiny camera will be fitted in.
Apple filed its patent application with United States Patent and Trademark Office under the name, Small Form Factor High-Resolution Camera. According to 9to5Mac, the novelty camera is expected to be integrated with the latest iteration of the Apple Watch that will be rolled out soon in the market. With the new camera, the Apple Watch users will be able to click high resolution images and record high quality videos right off their wrist. Also, the camera can be utilized for FaceTime calls.
Earlier, last year in September, Apple had filed a patent application for the design of the 2mm long camera. The patent application filed then stated that this new technology “would make the camera more suitable to be used in small devices.” Speculations and rumors are rife that the Apple premium wearable products will receive a major update in their OS (operating system) as well of the Apple’s launch of new Apple Watch that would boast of new OS.
While there is no official word or any strong evidence to prove that the patent for the 2mm camera is for the new Apple Watch, one thing can be assured that with this new patent, Apple has once again stamped its authority of being one of the best technology companies in the world. With the development of this amazing, tiny camera, Apple does total justice to its reputation of being a company that constantly keeps innovating and improving to make all its devices attractive, slimmer and elegant.
Tech experts from around the world suggest that it is highly likely that Apple has come-up with this new 2mm long camera so that it doesn’t take as much space as it currently does in its iPhone models. The other seemingly usage of the camera would be in the Apple watch as the tiny design of the watch already has space constraints.
Whether the new camera is integrated with the new Apple Watch or not, only time will tell. But, the new camera has already attracted the attention of the Apple fans and critics. While the fans are going gaga in appreciation of the new technology, the critics are of the opinion that if it is integrated with the Apple watch, it would lead to awkward situations for the users, especially at public places and social gatherings. The critics also feel that the camera would affect the battery life of the watch and also it would lead to privacy issues as anyone can click a picture discretely.
Critics can find ‘n’ number of reasons to find fault with the new 2mm camera, after all it is their job. But, lets us not take anything away from Apple for introducing this technological masterpiece. The fans around the world are excited, we are excited, and it is only a matter of time till the camera makes its debut!
