Apple patents reveal new uses for 3D Touch on the iPhone

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's good? Brian Tong here and welcome to the applebyte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. Check this out, I finally got my iPhone 6S. And it looks exactly like the iPhone 6. But can your phone do this? I can peek and pop just like that. Alright, Apple announced that they sold over 13 million iPhones in the first three days of availability. And topping last year's 10 million unit sales record. I'm enjoying the 6S, and even though 3D touch is in its infancy, the potential is huge. There's nothing out there on the market like it today, and it will be a game changer moving. Pinky pop. Now, what else might be Apple up to with 3D touch? Patently Apple reveals a newly granted patent for 3D animated maps. That could be manipulated by touch and logically 3D touch. The example shows a body of water that could be touched and then animated and then 3D view that water could even be reflected against the surface of buildings. Whoo. Not sure why I would ever do that. Also, they told us Touch ID was twice as fast but it's so freaking fast that you can only see your log screen for a split second. I know I'm not the only one with this home screen quickie issue. Now, the other stand out feature we know is the updated iPhone 6s camera. Camera Plus cofounder, Lisa Bettany, has been doing her iPhone camera comparison for years at Snap Snap Snap, that show off the differences with generation of every iPhone camera side by side. Now it's really worth checking out to see how each camera handles things like backlit pictures, daylight against the yellow helicopter, low light situations, or a group of pencils in a macro shot. Her verdict? Not surprisingly, is the 6S is the best iPhone camera to date, but seeing how it has evolved is really cool. And if you are having troubles with bad low light photos on the iPhone 6S Users have discovered that it is best to turn the "Live Photos" feature off in these situations. The reason? A live photo is constantly recording at 12 frames per second and it cannot leave the exposure long enough to capture more light or a clearer image. So the tip of the day in low light situations don't use, Live Photos. Also Apple has been advertising the water damage protection with the 6s. But as Ifixit found, they've added a parameter gasket around the 3D touch display and there's new silicone that seals the cable connectors that will greatly help to keep liquids out of it's internals. Now the silicone seals where described in an Apple patent earlier this year and it looks like they've implemented them with the 6S. Zach Straley kept both the iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus in a bowl of water for an hour and they were both fine afterwards, but iDevice Help put the 6s under four feet of water and it didn't fare as well. So the new iPhones are pretty water resistant but definitely not waterproof. [SOUND] All right you can guess there's already a few iPhone 7 reports floating out there I know. There's this one for a strengthened waterproof casing and a report that Apple may ditch the metallic casing altogether for the next iPhone. Really, guys, the iPhone 6S just came out. But, maybe something that has a little more substance behind it from patent le Apple. Check this out. Apple has recently granted 28 patents, and the most fun and intriguing one, an iPhone with a wraparound display. The product with the diagram shows off a transparent housing and a flexible display assembly enclosed within that housing. You can see how the wrap around screen increases the available display area. [COUGH] Samsung did it All right, but it's a fun look at what could be coming in the future. Now Mac OS X El Capitan is now available for download as a free update, featuring a split screen view, faster app launching, an approved spotlight search, and faster performance, so We'll be checking it out this week, but it looks like a solid update and it's the best price for free. Apple also released its latest iOS 9.0.2 update that helps with bug fixes, Apple's podcast app from crashing, and more. And Apple released the third iOS 9.1 beta to developers. It's the iOS you've been waiting for with new Planet wallpapers and the only emojis we've been waiting for like the burrito and taco, more emoticons and the middle finger that would be able to change skin tones. You know I've always felt like I was missing the right finger emoji sometimes so, thank you Apple. All right, that's going to do it for this week's show.
