Patents suggest that the iPhone 12 may get gestures in the air thanks to a new ToF depth sensor




A new patent has revealed details of a forward-facing Time-of-Flight Depth (ToF) sensor that will appear in an upcoming Apple phone – supposedly the iPhone 12 – that would enable gestures in the air.

Ultimately, the ToF sensor could replace the existing depth sensor system on flagship iPhones, which are used to recognize faces but also record hand gestures Apparently Apple. The latter could be used for touchless navigation, like the in-air gesture features of the LG G8 (the pioneer of the Selfie ToF) and the Google Pixel 4, though neither implementation has been too successful.
