The battle of the next generation smartphones have started. Almost every smartphone maker has announced its next generation device except Apple who yet has to reveal the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6. According to the rumors, Apple will soon unveil its next iPhone later this year.
It seems that Apple will not only be unveiling its next generation smartphone but also some more iPhones that will target the other consumers in the mobile market. So Apple will no only unveil the iPhone 6 but also the iPhone 5S and a budget iPhone. It could also be possible that the budget iPhone itself is the iPhone 5S. The interesting part is that these new iPhones might have eye tracking technology which will allow users to use the device in a totally new way.
This eye tracking technology might be very similar to the one that is being used in the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the new Galaxy S4. Apple already owns a lot of patents relating to eye tracking and motion control of an iPhone or iPad, and a new startup is offering eye tracking and head tracking control for iOS devices like the iPad and iPhone.
Apple already offers a software only solution for eye and head tracking that controls an iOS device. Reports say that Apple will now bring this technology to the iPhone and iPad in a much better and user friendly way. The company plans to actually use this concept to the max in order to allow normal users to take full advantage of this eye tracking technology. Apple iOS 7 might already have support for this technology therefore allowing current Apple devices to be able to use it as well. This is just a probability because we do not know whether the new eye tracking technology will require some special hardware design which might then not allow current devices to make use of it.
