Apple’s future smartphones and tablets may have a feature that will protect information on the screen from prying eyes. The company has received a patent on this issue.

Future iPhones and iPads will hide on screen information from prying eyes

Apple is pursuing a different strategy for adapting innovative technologies to its products. We see that the Cupertino company is not in a hurry to move the features available on Android devices to iPhones. The company is also trying to provide maximum security to its users.

In March of this year, Apple patented a method that would allow it to hide information on the screen of digital devices from prying eyes. Thanks to the new method, future iPhones and iPads will not show the information on the screen to strangers. Only the owner of the phone or tablet will see.

The software-based function will run based on data from the Face ID face-scanning system. It will hide all sections except the area where the user is looking by following their eyes. Thus, only the person who interacts directly with the device will be able to see the information on the screen. Those who look at it from different angles will see the image darkened or distorted. It’s kind of going to mimic the polarized film app on ATM screens.

Let’s note that the new feature is still in the patent stage. It’s unclear when it will be applied to Apple devices. However, considering the company’s sensitivity to privacy and the protection of user data, it is highly likely to become a reality.
