Apple recently filed a patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office. It describes a new feature that will protect the information on the iPhone or iPad display from prying eyes. The key element required for the new option to work will be special glasses. With their help, device owners will be able to view information on the screen without any problems. For everyone else, the image on the display should be blurry.
Alas, the patent does not contain information on how the new technology will work specifically. It is possible that the function of viewing hidden content will become one of the chips of Apple’s mixed reality glasses. According to rumors, the latter may come out in the next few years.
In this case, all issues related to transferring data from iPhone to glasses will be removed. In the past, some sources have reported that Apple’s first AR/VR device can only be paired with a smartphone. Without the iPhone, its capabilities will be greatly reduced.
