The latest patent that Apple has added to its ever growing range of patents it certainly a strange one, a patent for “Text-based communication control for personal communication device,” was granted to Apple recently.
The patent describes an intelligent control unit or applications that filters text messages if the contain ‘objectionable’ content, and it is designed to give parents more control over their children’s text messages, and it can also be used to check spelling, grammar and punctuation.
This is a somewhat strange patent, in terms of Apple wanting to control what sort of text messages are sent on their device, would you use this for your kids phone to filter their text messages?
