    Don't panic yet. Apple patents all sorts of stuff they never intend to use.

    Also, perhaps they patented this specifically to make it harder for others to implement the same (very bad) idea.

    What he said.

    Apple has the most absurd kinds and quantities of patents. Most have never seen the light of day as actual product features.

    yes nothing to see here, move along.

    They are just going to make it so you cant video the police or record any political criminals at work.

    Then if they can do that you will have to rely solely on the big media companies for information, and we all know they are 100% working for the people.

    Reminds me of that case where an escort killed her customer and called AT&T, asked if her iPhone could be tracked, then proceeded to cancel her service and dispose of the phone.
