Next iPhone could feature many new sensors for working out your temperature, location and even mood as per an interview with Benedetto Vigna.
The General Manager of the MEMS division of STMicroelectronics, Vigna in an interview with New York Times‘ Nick Bilton shared information on just what new sensors could find their way into the iPhone 5.
Mr. Vigna said that the next generation smart phones would have altimeter sensors that would be able to detect your elevation. He also said that the Apple could introduce mood sensing technology in the iPhone with sensors checking the user’s perspiration and temperature.
An arrangement of sensors could also be used to increase security, it will start to learn your patterns and automatically lock or unlock the phone accordingly. This could be helpful for more secure banking too.
