Apple may block iPhone from taking photos, videos at concerts
Filming videos and clicking photographs at live concerts may soon be a thing of the past, as Apple is working on a technology that could disable photo and video functionality at events.
 
The company won approval from the US Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday for a patent it applied for in 2009 relating to its cameras and their interaction with infrared signals, reports independent.co.uk. 
 
According to online music magazine Pitchfork, in some cases, the device could use the infrared data to show a user information related to a nearby object, such as an exhibit in a museum. 
 
In other cases, the device could use the infrared data to disable the device's recording functions. As an example, the patent includes an illustration of a band performing onstage as a camera screen shows the text "recording disabled". 
 
While the technology might be aimed at preventing copyright infringement, it could come with the added bonus of improving the concert-going experience. 
 
Artists like Adele, Jack White and Zooey Deschanel have publicly expressed displeasure about the throng of phones at concerts.

Android N is now 'Android Nougat'
Technology giant Google on Thursday announced on Snapchat that the latest version of Android operating system Android N will now go by "Android Nougat".
 
"Introducing #AndroidNougat. Thank you, world, for all your sweet name ideas! #AndroidNReveal," the company wrote.
 
The announcement comes after the company asked for suggestions saying that users could submit suggestions for the name online. Nougat is the latest dessert-themed version of Android due out later this summer. 
 
The release, initially announced in March and currently on its second (and mostly stable) beta, brings new features like an improved notification shade and split-screen multitasking to the mobile OS, while also improving on features like Doze that came with Marshmallow last year, technology website The Verge reported. 
 
The release also has Daydream, Google's new VR platform, baked in, though it will only be supported by Daydream-ready handsets running the OS.
