Apple breveteaza sistemul de utilizare a unui iDevice in timpul unui apel

27

   Stiti cu totii ca un iPhone poate fi utilizat in timpul unei convorbiri telefonice, mai exact puteti mentine apelul deschis si accesa interfata iOS-ului foarte simplu si usor. Aproape toate smartphone-urile permite exact aceeasi functionalitate insa Apple pare as fi facut un mare pas spre fortarea unei schimbari. Astazi companiei din Cupertino i-a fost brevetat sistemul acesta de utilizare a unui smartphone in timpul unui apel telefonic si teoretic toate terminalele Android plus cele ale altor producatori ar incalca brevetul celor de la Apple.

A method, comprising: at a portable electronic device with a touch screen display: displaying on the touch screen display a first user interface for a phone application during a phone call; detecting activation of a menu icon or menu button during the phone call, in response to detecting activation of the menu icon or menu button, replacing the first user interface for the phone application with a menu of application icons including an icon for the phone application and an icon for a non-telephone application; maintaining the phone call while displaying the menu of application icons on the touch screen display; detecting a finger gesture on an application icon in the menu of application icons other than the phone application icon; in response to detecting the finger gesture on the application icon other than the phone application icon, displaying a corresponding application user interface on the touch screen display while continuing to maintain the phone call and modifying the corresponding application user interface to include a switch application icon that is not displayed in the corresponding application user interface when there is no ongoing phone call; detecting a finger gesture on the touch screen display on the switch application icon; and in response to detecting the finger gesture on the switch application icon, replacing display of the corresponding application user interface with the first user interface for the phone application while continuing to maintain the phone call.

   Apple descrie nu doar tehnologia in sine ci si pasii pe care un utilizator ii face cu smartphone-ul sau pentru a o utiliza iar asta s-ar putea dovedi a fi o mare problema pentru competitori. Cu ajutorul acestui brevet Apple ar putea da in judecata orice producator de terminale Android si probabil ar putea chiar avea castig de cauza in fata instantelor, lucru care s-a intamplat chiar azi cu HTC si cu alt brevet de inventie. Cei de la Apple si-au facut o “misiune” din a breveta toate tehnologiile implementate in iOS si cu ajutorul lor ar putea obtine multi bani de la producatorii de terminale Android.

   Acest brevet este foarte interesant si cred ca ii va ajuta pe cei de la Apple sa schimbe multe in disputele actuale.

1. During a call on a mobile device with a touch screen, with the phone user interface showing, the users touches either a menu button or an icon.

2. The device replaces the phone interface with a menu of application icons, including the phone icon.

3. A user’s finger gesture chooses another app.

4. The app’s interface comes up, all the while not dropping the call. The interface includes a “switch application icon” only when a phone call is occurring.

5. The user performs a finger gesture on the switch application icon, taking the user back to the phone interface.
