Apple Patents iOS Unlocking Methods Take Gestures as Input

Apple Patents iOS Unlocking Methods Take Gestures as Input

Apple has just been awarded full patent rights to a new form of technology of its own devising. It consists of various access inputs that allow apps, device utilities and functions to be unlocked and manipulated by a user. The Patent # 8,528,072 is quite a complex series of operations that can only be best described by a set of diagrams. The present day Apple iOS offers unlocking codes. The user base can make passwords and handles to limit access to authorized personnel only. Meanwhile, Apple allows Siri, Passbook and “Reply with a Message” upon the locked status of a gadget. A series of gestures and techniques may be used to gain legitimate access to the right information or domain. 

The game will be one of the usage of gestures and specified special acts of penetration that will yield the relevant data. Apple has already had a series of patents approved by the office. These include features having to do with the iWatch. The company has a history of innovation that is on the wild side. Steve Jobs saw to it that the angst-ridden style of perfectionism became a hallmark of Apple Incorporated. The man who is not with us anymore, having died from cancer, thought differently and that difference has made a radical transformation in the texture of thought it self. Apple continues his legacy although what was once a raging fire has become dying embers.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
