The Next iPhone to Respond to Head Movements

Written by 

You read that correctly. Engineers are busy at Apple headquarters gearing up for the next iPhone's iOS7 operating system, which is said to respond to your head movements. Simply moving your head from left to right will launch different commands on your iPhone just as your fingers do now.

According to the tipster that informed 9to5Mac, left to right head movements, "(act as) a home button, start Siri, open Notification Center, open the App Switcher, decrease volume, or simply tap." Yahoo! News explains that the phone will also carry 'blink' and 'smile' capabilities in the camera that only take photos when the recipient is looking directly and smiling "happily." What this means for candid photos, serious photos and photos of children and pets – who knows – a considerable deterrent form using this new camera technology.

If Apple rumors are true this means more then hands-free help, but can actually be used for those with lack of limb use, along with those in difficult situations having their hands full. Tedious maybe, but this opens doors for many. Although, with this brings people vigorously shaking their heads side to side in the streets… humorous, yet realistically there's almost always a downside to smart technology. We will see shortly if this survives beta testing.
