New Apple Patent Would Let You Shoot Underwater With Your iPhone

Apple iPhone

Apple is going to make your iPhone housing obsolete.

The US Patent & Trademark Office has published a patent application from Apple that details a submersible iPhone capable at taking pictures down to a depth of 90-140 feet of water. They’re not just looking at making the iPhone more waterproof, though. They actually want it to overcome the visual issues of shooting at such a depth to actually produce decent images.

The proposed system can automatically detect when a photograph is being shot underwater and then automatically compensate for potential underwater issues to improve the appearance of the shot.
