Apple has just approved a patent for software that would generate “synthetic group selfies,” that will help people take group selfies while following social distancing.
This patent was first discovered by Patently Apple. According to the patent, this software will allow Apple users to invite others to take part in a group selfie, and the software would group them together in a single image. As of now, it is still not clear whether this feature will be available on iPads, iPhones, or both.
Well, this software will allow Apple users to include still photos, stored video images, or live streaming images. Users could also keep the original selfie as well as the group version. Both the original user and recipients of the group image will be allowed to modify the selfie such as changing the position of their selfie in the group.
Well, this is a very great concept especially when the world is fighting against the novel coronavirus and people are said to maintain social distancing. However, it is assumed that this feature wasn’t developed specifically with the current situation of the world as this patent was originally filed back in 2018 and now the final approval.
Just like most of the patents, there is no guarantee that Apple would reproduce it to the real world or when it will turn out to real.
