What if you can’t access your phone while driving? It would be a good thing. But it could be even better if you could not access it, and drive, in case you are drunk. Precisely, this could soon be done on the Apple iPhone.
Before discussing this patent filed by the Cupertino company, let’s first talk about another very good news. And even more so if you are a fan of Fortnite. The famous battle royal from Epic Games. A game that had disappeared on iPhone.
Indeed, due to disagreements between the studio and IOS, the game was no longer available on the Apple Store. But several months after his disappearance, he signs his big comeback. Because yes, Fortnite is downloadable again to everyone’s delight.
But the news would be even better if we learned that the game was free. Well know that it is. As on all the other consoles on which it is available. On the other hand, there will always be micro-transactions.
This will still not prevent you from having a good time on the game which has been bringing together more and more players for years. Unless between two parties, you get harassed by a person to whom you don’t want to give the time.
And if so, all you need to do is block this person. In the case where it is a salesman who is a little too insistent or a ex who is a little too clingy. To do this, you just have to go to the “recent” tab.
Then find the iPhone number that annoys you the most and click on the “i”. Once done, you just have to go down to the bottom of your page and click on “block this correspondent”. By doing this, you won’t be bothered anymore.
Stop driving while drunk with the iPhone
Finally, let’s get to driving. And let’s take this opportunity to say that, according to a study, Android owners would drive better than those with an Apple. It is perhaps for this reason that the Cupertino company is considering improving this.
Going by the fact that iPhone owners don’t can no longer drive while drunk. Those are our colleagues from Presse Citron who relayed this funny info. The media explaining that a patent had just been filed.
“More exactly, the document would describe a mechanism. Through which the driver’s iPhone would know if he has a high blood alcohol level. Thanks to an integrated breathalyzer or an accessory. And if the alcohol level exceeds the authorized threshold, the iPhone would block access to the vehicle. Through the Car Keys feature ».
But how, when the state allows it, to drive again? The designers of the iPhone would have already thought of everything. Since the driver could “prove that he is able to drive. By winning a manual dexterity challenge. Or by solving mathematical calculations. Otherwise, the operating system would continue to restrict access to the vehicle”.
Explain our colleagues. It remains to be seen whether this device will really see the light of day. And if so, if we’re going to have to wait a long time to enjoy it.
