Always seeking to innovate, Apple does not stop accumulating patents concerning the multiple improvements which it wishes to bring to its apparatuses. In addition to those already obtained in recent times, the company has just deposited a new one which is rather interesting.

It allows for example to scroll the screen without needing to touch it. In addition, it also offers faster and easier access to certain settings and features such as volume, resizing of content, photo capture, etc.
