Apple awarded right to disable iPhone cameras at concerts

Apple has been awarded the right for a new system which could potentially stop people filming concerts with their iPhones.

The company’s invention would allow venues to use an infrared beam to disable photography on mobile phones, preventing people from taking videos and photos. 

“An infrared emitter can be located in areas where picture or video capture is prohibited,” the awarded patent adds. “An electronic device can then receive the infrared signals, decode the data and temporarily disable the device’s recording function based on the command.”
