OREANDA-NEWS. July 21, 2016. A group of people is asking Apple not to include features in its iPhones that could allow police and governments to remotely disable their cameras. The technology, which was described in a patent awarded to the company last month
, could allow a phone's camera to be remotely disabled through infrared signals.
"The release of this technology would have huge implications, including the censoring of political dissidents, activists, and citizens who are recording police brutality," the petition says.
