Posted January 05, 2019 09:24:54Apple is working on a new version of its iPhone camera app that would enable the user to take a picture of the screen and send it to Apple’s servers, according to people familiar with the matter.
The software update, which Apple declined to share, would allow users to take photos of their iPhones screens, according the people, who asked not to be identified because the software is still under development.
Apple declined to comment on the matter on Tuesday.
Apple has been using video cameras on its iPhone to make videos of its products for years, including for the Apple Watch and for the iWatch, which launched in June.
The company has been working on new versions of its camera app for years.
Apple is trying to make the iPhone camera more intuitive for users and would make it easier for developers to create their own video-capture apps, said one of the people.
The app would be available in iOS 10 and watchOS 5, the two most recent versions of the operating system.
Apple’s new app would make the phone camera more like a camera for a computer.
It would allow for automatic exposures and auto-brightness and automatically capture video at various frame rates, such as 4K video and 120fps.
The new camera app would not replace the camera on iPhones.
Rather, it would complement existing apps, including those for iOS and the iPhoto app, the people said.
The iPhone’s camera app has been the focus of several Apple-related lawsuits, including a lawsuit from the National Rifle Association that has been settled.
The NRA also filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Apple.
Apple has argued that it doesn’t need the NRA’s help.
The court ruled last year that Apple didn’t need a federal injunction to sell the iPhone.
Apple was sued by the NRA last year over its video camera.
The case is still ongoing.
The Apple Watch app, which has been available for several months, has also been the subject of several lawsuits.
In December, a California jury ordered Apple to stop selling the watch app and to stop marketing the device as a personal video camera because it could create privacy risks for consumers.
The companies reached a settlement in that case.
