The iPhone 5s and 5c have only been out since September, but a lot of people are already eagerly awaiting the release of the iPhone 6, which is rumored to be in mid-2014. Many rumors are already circulating about the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 6. Most rumors are pretty typical: the iPhone 6 will have longer battery life and a better camera than the 5s, but one rumor stands out: the iPhone 6 will have 3D vision.
Last week Apple confirmed that it has acquired PrimeSense, an Israeli company that has designed and built the technology that powers the motion sensor on the Xbox Kinect; PrimeSense focuses on creating sensors that allow people to interact with certain products. Allegedly Apple bought PrimeSense for no less than $350 million. It is not crazy to expect that Apple will be using PrimeSense’s motion sensor technology in the iPhone 6.
Experts say that PrimeSense’s technology has become so small that it will soon be possible to incorporate it into the iPhone 6, which means that the smartphone will have 3D-sensing capability. That means that when you take a picture your phone can calculate the size of the objects or people that you captured, and maybe even find matching furniture for the room.
This technology will be very advanced and unique, which is exactly what Apple needs if they want to keep costumers. Many people argue that the iPhone 5 and 5s are too much like the iPhone 5, and it looks like a few extra features and advanced technology are needed to keep the costumers satisfied with the products. If the rumor that the iPhone 6 will cost $100 more than the iPhone 5, this is especially true.
