The Patent and Trademark Office is called “Adjusting the Functions of the Electronic Device During Moisture” which makes it easier to use the iPhone in the rain. Sure, your phone is likely designed to withstand some moisture, but that doesn’t make it easy to type on a wet screen or with wet fingers.
The An apple I just received approval for a new device patent From the US Patent and Trademark Office named “Adjusting the functionality of an electronic device during exposure to moisture“The iPhone can be easier to use in the rain. Sure, your phone is probably designed to withstand some moisture, but that doesn’t make it easy to type on a wet screen or with wet fingers.
Apple want Monitor The iPhone adapts to humidity, whether it is light rain, constant water saturation, or if the device is used under water. The false taps on the screen caused by the liquid will be detected by technology Included in the patent and eliminated. On-screen controls can change according to larger and larger buttons, moving away from other buttons to improve accuracy when the screen is wet.
At the same time, the iPhone’s capacitive screen will automatically switch to a pressure-sensitive screen similar to the Apple screen that no longer uses Force Touch and 3D Touch technologies. To prevent raindrops or liquids from accidentally triggering touch inputs, Apple will require these digital printers to have more power than a dynamic limit that may change depending on the type of wet event (light rain, heavy rain, for example) making the touch screen difficult to type accurately.
An image in patent documents shows an iPhone camera app that provides settings for “dry,” “wet,” and “underwater” modes. Depending on the situation, changes are made to the camera user interface. For example, in wet mode, some features are removed from the user interface while in underwater mode, and some controls are replaced with buttons that are very large that are easy to activate underwater but have restricted functionality.
The patent image shows the iPhone in wet mode.
The phone screen will display the current depth of the device, so that the user can keep it within the limits of the device’s water resistance. Apple will need to be careful when scaling and relocating the camera UI buttons to ensure users are not confused.
Apple gets a lot of patents over the course of a year, and not all of them lead to new technologies being implemented right away. It is unclear whether Apple will be interested in implementing this patent immediately.
