In April 2013, analyst Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets had predicted that Apple would create a ring in the future to order a possible TV (read: iRing: an Apple ring to control the iTV?). A patent recently filed by the Californian brand seems to revive this rumor, at least as far as the accessory is concerned.
After the Apple Watch, the Cupertino company is indeed working on a smart ring, or iRing. The patent, filed with theUnited States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and identified as often by Apple Insider, describes a ring with a touch screen allowing a user to control an external electronic device.
Specifically, this “iRing”Would include a computer processor, wireless receiver and be rechargeable. We also learn that the ring is worn on the index finger, and receives pressure from a second finger like the thumb. It is then possible to perform several actions, transmitted wirelessly to an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or even a Mac. The iRing soon in the jewelry store near you?
