Your next iPhone could detect whether it’s being used by a thief

Because our ‘smart’ devices remain close to us throughout the day and are the highlight of our days, it is not so difficult to understand why these devices, particularly our smartphones, should be personalized to a higher degree. We are not referring to the outer appearance of the phone such as the covers you choose to put them in but we are talking in terms of how much they understand us and can anticipate our behavior. A new patent application has been published this Thursday by Apple and it is about how the future iPhones and other mobile devices are being experimented by Apple. These experiments can comb through the usage patterns on particular device and also determine whether the phone is being used by the rightful owner or not.

The pattern recognition tools come into play for this system to exist and they cleverly examine everything from location and detected motion, to grammar, vocab and keyboard orientation preferences. The analysis generated from this would then be carried out on a dedicated pattern recognition server based off-site. In case the iPhone detects that the phone isn’t being used by the real owner, a signal will be sent out which will remotely lock the phone and it won’t be in a condition to be used unless a trusted form of authentication is provided. Apple has always been the leader when it comes to smartphone security and this particular new system can be of great help to all iPhone users.

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.
