Now there are reports again about a new Apple patent. This concerns "wrist-worn devices“, The Apple Watch. What we do with the Apple Watch Series 3 I would like to explain that to you in this little article.

Apple wants to patent gesture control

Admittedly, it is not a real innovation, because Android wearables can already do so can be controlled with gestures. Nevertheless, it would be an innovation for the Apple Watch, which already on the last keynote started the second series with ample revaluations. The third generation of Apple's smartwatch could now be operated using hand, arm and / or wrist movements.

With the new smartwatch off Cupertinothat probably on the Keynote 2017 will be presented, something similar could then be possible. Whether raising or lowering the shutters with a gesture of the hand, sending files with a tap of the finger or steering the drone with a gesture that points to "the Force" Star Wars reminded - I think that and a lot more will be possible with Apple from next year. The tenth birthday of the iPhone is also celebrated with the periphery;)
