Want to know what Apple is up to next? Just check with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO). Appleinsider reported that the next generation iPhone could have 3D picture capabilities. A patent filed by Apple called, "Systems and Methods for an Imaging System Using Multiple Image Sensors" suggests that the hottest U.S. company is entering into the world of 3D imagery. The rumor mill is already a buzz as to what the new features will be on the iPhone5. Take 3D photography off the list of rumors. It's now a possibility.
Also discovered via the USPTO, not as cool a find as a 3D camera, but for those intrigued by all Apple products, Apple maybe working on a Power Adapter with a built-in battery device to charge such devices as a Macbook, iPhone or iPod when away from an electrical outlet. According to the image (shown above) submitted to the USPTO, the device has a "wireless control". One can only guess that this means wireless charging is in the future.
