According to the Web-news, Apple is studying a character recognition application.
The concept would consist of using two cameras placed on this mobile equipment to identify human writing or printed files.
In the near future, it would therefore be possible to use our mobile phone as a scanner or as a business card importer.
This application is not really new because previously other free or paid applications already offered it. As a result, Apple will have to be faced with more or less established competitors in this field.
If Apple is studying this application, it is because the company considers that this sector may be an opportunity to improve its equipment with new features. Indeed, this OCR system would allow access to multiple applications and uses.
Moreover, and if the rumor turns out to be true, Apple had to work once again on its camera system for the future version that it is preparing for us.
However, Apple has not approved anything and has not commented on the matter.
