Apple Granted Patent For iDevice Which Recognizes Users’ Hands


As Engadget reports, Apple has recently been granted a patent for a pretty clever concept. It’s a “handheld device” which can recognize different users just from the way they hold it. Once the device knows its user’s identity, it can then personalize button areas that match whichever fanboy is currently gripping it.

However, if Apple’s patent comes into play, users can expect their iDevice to smarten up and reduce human error. There will be less likelihood  of the device reacting when someone accidentally touches the screen. Ideally, button areas will be brought closer together, meaning navigating the 9.7″ iPad screen will be a whole lot easier.
