Patent Reveals Apple Looking Into 3D Interface for iPhone

Posted on January 12, 2012 by

A new patent reveals that Apple could be considering a 3D user interface for the iPhone. AppleInsider reports that the patent titled “Sensor Based Display Environment” would use data from the gyroscope and sensors to navigate the system.

From AppleInsider:

In the application, Apple notes that problems can occur when using a 3D user interface with a touchscreen. The application refers to 3D as polygons on the screen of a traditional iPhone, rather than the “illusion” of 3D by sending two different images to each eye with a new, special display.
