Who says Apple, automatically says controversial. Either by eliminating traditional features of their terminals such as the Touch ID, or by launching products that, maybe they make little sense, The truth is that the company is always being talked about.
And, in addition to this, we can almost always see Americans involved in patent litigation against Samsung – usually – or other companies. And today we have been able to know precisely some of the latest lawsuits filed against the company for patents, let’s see the result!

And this is precisely what has happened to Apple, since it has been sued by Corephotonics and by Allied Signal.
The demands are nothing more and nothing less than due to the double camera of the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X and by the “do not disturb while driving” mode.
The demand for Corephotonics points to Apple’s dual camera technology, since the American company, in its terminals, instead of using a digital zoom, uses both cameras to combine digital and optical zoom thanks to the use of certain algorithms, which allows a better image quality, despite the zoom.
