(TeamRock Radio) Apple has been granted a patent which could temporarily disable iPhone cameras at gigs. The technology giant first applied for the patent in 2011 and it was granted this week by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

According to 9to5Mac, the technology has the potential to block an iPhone from recording video or taking a photograph via an infrared signal within a certain range - such as at a concert or in a cinema.

The patent paperwork reads: "An infrared emitter can be located in areas where picture or video capture is prohibited, and the emitter can generate infrared signals with encoded data that includes commands to disable the recording functions of devices." Read more here.
