Apple testing motion detection in iOS 7, but who will use it?

Gambar

We’re no stranger to motion detection features in technology nowadays. It’s becoming de rigueur in video games and has even made its way into televisions, among other things. Now, according to 9to5MacApple is joining the team, introducing limited motion control to both the iPad and iPhone, once iOS 7 is released later this fall.

Don’t expect to see anything too in-depth; it’s a far cry from what you’ll find in the Samsung Smart TV or Microsoft Kinect, which have evolved to give users pretty accurate control of on-screen activity. Instead, what Apple is introducing to its mobile devices (at least in the beta version currently being tested out by developers), is a simple head movement recognition.

It’s an optional feature that, if it makes its way to the final release of iOS 7, you may have to opt to turn on manually. Once you turn the option on, which is done via the Accessibilities menu in Settings, you have the ability to assign certain actions to both left and right head movements. When you turn your head to the right, for example, it can act as a home button or it could launch Siri, pop up your App Switcher, toggle the volume, or act as a tap. (These options could be assigned to a left head turn as well.)

It’s a rather tedious process, however; since the head gestures are so limited, what the device will actually do is slowly scroll through on-screen options. When it reaches the one you’re looking for, you just swing your head to the side and the selection is made.

Again, we have a hard time seeing this as being an option anyone will choose outside of the feature being a necessity, but it is nonetheless interesting to see Apple making these types of advances, giving us a glimpse into the possible future of mobile device control.

Good news for mobile gamers: Apple is set to license a range of official, iOS 7 game controllers

Apple Game Controller Concepts

From Andy Boxall of writing, Apple is gearing up to put its seal of approval on a new line of game controllers designed for use with iOS devices, following the inclusion of a dedicated game controller API in iOS 7. A report published by PocketGamer.co.uk says the company has created a set of guidelines to which third party manufacturers must adhere if they want to make a controller, and that like many other Apple accessories, a Certified by Apple stamp will be given to those that do.

The standards include references to design, button placement, response time, and the, “dead zone” on an analog joystick, and that Apple will allow two different types of controllers to be produced – a case-like model which cradles the iPhone, and a wireless gamepad, presumably aimed more for use with the iPad.

A check of Apple’s website reveals references to MFi game controllers (MFi stands for Made For iPhone/iPad/iPod), and a Game Controller Programming Guide for developers. The pictures you see here, which PocketGamer claims have been authenticated as Apple concept diagrams, give an idea of the layout rather than the design, so don’t be put off by their basic look.

While different types of gaming accessories are available for the iPhone and the iPad already, the main issue with each one is game compatibility, and even popular systems like the iCade have a limited number of supported titles. By licensing its own products, and giving developers easy access to the code and specification of the controllers, Apple neatly avoids this problem.

It’s excellent news for mobile gamers, but not so good for makers of other handheld gaming systems, such as Sony and Nintendo. Using a set of physical controls instead of a touchscreen is one of the major benefits of gaming on the Vita and 3DS, and one which will be lessened by decent, Apple approved controllers.

According to the report, Logitech and MOGA are both signed on to produce iPhone and iPad controllers, and they’ll be in stores after the summer. Whether Apple will make its own reference design controller remains to be seen. If it does, it’ll be following in the footsteps of Samsung, which introduced an official wireless controller with the Galaxy S4. Whatever Apple’s decision, let’s hope the iOS controllers will be more reasonably priced than Samsung’s effort.
