A couple of patent applications from Apple indicate that the company is all set to finally introduce a stylus with its flagship smartphone, iPhone. Since the birth of iPhone, Apple Chief, Steve Jobs, has been against the idea of a stylus for his companyâ€™s smartphone that has a super responsive multi-touch screen. To an extent, everyone was certainly convinced of Jobsâ€™ stand on a stylus that might make Apple iPhone slightly heavy to handle.
But what to do if you want to type some text on the iPhone screen? It will be unfeasible to write or draw something on iPhoneâ€™s display using your fingers. It is here that Apple has reportedly decided to rethink as far as the inclusion of a stylus is concerned. Apple has recently submitted two patent applications to add a stylus to its iPhone smartphone. The first application that is titled â€śStylus for Touchscreen Devicesâ€ť talks about a stylus for devices with capacitive touchscreens. The above-image from UnwiredView.com shows Appleâ€™s concept of including a stylus in its superhit smartphone.
Apple has also planned to place the rechargeable stylus inside its iPhone so that it can accept power from the deviceâ€™s battery. "The stylus is meant to provide more consistent interaction between the capacitive sensors in the computing device and the stylus,â€ť explains the particular Apple patent application.
The second Apple patent application for stylus titled â€śCommunicating stylusâ€ť proposes a device that is a bit large but more advanced with motion sensors, wireless transmission facility and data storage chips. This means that you can transfer the data written on a paper or whiteboard into the iDevice wirelessly.
