Apple запатентовала Digital Crown для iPhone и iPad

Колесо регулировки изначально являлось характерной чертой оригинальных устройств BlackBerry. Но время шло, и большинство основных функций перекочевало на управление с помощью тачскрина. Компания Apple все же решила вернуть старую традицию и доказала с помощью своих Apple Watch, что в цифровом веке по-прежнему имеется место для физических органов управления. Цифровая коронка на часах смотрится настолько красиво и элегантно, что кажется, что она была создана именно для этого.

Но неужели Apple планирует пойти дальше и внедрит ее в свои будущие смартфоны iPhone и планшеты iPad? Недавно опубликованный патент говорит о том, что компания по крайней мере рассматривает такую возможность.

Бюро по регистрации патентов и торговых марок США на днях опубликовало заявку на патент Apple под номером 20160216801, в которой объясняется метод использования цифровой коронки на боковой части устройства для скроллинга, управления громкостью, изменения размера текста и изображений, а также других задач вроде блокировки и разблокировки сенсорного экрана.

Наличие такого органа управления у таких устройств, как Apple Watch, где управлять устройством через крошечный сенсорный дисплей не всегда бывает удобным, вполне оправдано. Но iPhone и iPad? В таких устройствах колесо скорее будет как собаке пятая нога. Уже можно представить себе, как множество людей будут цепляться ею за все, что только можно, начиная от одежды и заканчивая углами мебели.
