Apple has a new patent application which if implemented, will be able to “sense” the user, gathering information via voice prints, faces, activity patterns and even heartbeats. Just in case an unauthorized person is detected, a slew of security measures can be activated without the user knowing any better. For example, if the the iOS device detects that the user is not authorized, it will begin to shoot photos while sending them to an email account complete with GPS coordinates for reference. You can also sift through other data including keystroke logs and phone calls among others, while as the owner, you can also save any data remotely followed by wiping out the device not too long after. We look forward to the day where your iPhone ends up being more secure than Fort Knox.
