Apple’s revolutionary approach to new technology is almost never ending. Almost every product it releases is always more interesting than the previous one. Here’s an update on the next iPhone OS (possibly version 4.0 or 5.0): You can point your iPhone to a real object which the phone will actually recognize and provide relevant information about it! How about that.
That’s not all. The forthcoming OS will also support Facial recognition. The access privileges in the iPhone will be controlled using this technology. There have been several patents filed in relation to the above features and several others which include: Message Filtering, Managing Multiple-Recipient Messages, Unread Message Alerts and Voice Modulation.[source: unwiredview.com]
