A freelance developer finds that the recently released OS X Mavericks is able to identify the movement and interrupt the sleep mode by using the ambient light sensor
According to Apple Balla, an independent developer named Moshen Chen has discovered that Apple’s latest operating system is capable of sensing the existence of the user more effectively by applying the built-in ambient light sensor.
The ability of turning off or putting the display to the sleep mode of OS X was only based on the mouse and keyboard inputs. But the developer of Living Earth finds that the ambient light feature is hidden in the latest OS X Mavericks.
In the beginning, Chen assumed that the iSight camera was responsible for the action. But other developers immediately took several tests and reported that it was not the case. The Verge reports, “After covering the camera but not the light sensor, we were able to delay sleep mode by changing the ambient lighting conditions.”
The ambient light sensor is included in all generations of MacBook Pros. It is also included in the latest models of iMac and standalone displays for the purpose of regulating the brightness of the keyboard backlights and display.
