Please NO: Apple patents camera-blocking technology.

Apple patented technology that would allow blocking the use of cameras in iPhones wherever it is deployed. Who is it made for? Certainly not consumers! How many iPhone buyers ever said: “I wish they disabled my camera here”?

In a disingenuous propaganda move, Apple described ┬áthis technology as being able to “…stop smartphone cameras being used at concerts”. Right. It’s about concerts. It can’t possibly be meant to be used by corporate or government security. And I’m sure no police department would think of wiring this device to a squad car flashers, to prevent bystanders from filming police work. It’s strictly about concerts. Nothing to see and record here, move along.
