We have seen a number of Apple iPhone camera patents in the past that Apple have yet to use on their devices and now some more patents have been revealed.
The latest Apple iPhone camera patents were discovered by Apple Insider and the details of the patents were published by the USPTO recently.
Apple has filed some patents for a new iPhone camera that is capable of splitting light to provide more accurate colors and also improved low light performance.
The patent is described as a ‘Digital camera with light splitter’ and it comes with the patent filing number 8,988,564.
The system is currently used in pro cameras and also some consumer cameras, where three sensor lighting technology is used to split the light into three colors or wavelengths, this is done using either a single prism or multiple prisms.
According to the report, Apple’s patent filing uses similar technologies that companies like Canon, Philips and Panasonic use in their cameras.
Apple first filed the patent for their new Apple iPhone camera patent back in 2011, although the patent was only just published recently. It is not clear as yet on whether we will see this technology used in future versions of the Apple iPhone.
