Apple Exploring Alternative Pinch-to-Zoom Methods

Apple Exploring Alternative Pinch-to-Zoom Methods

Mikey Campbell for AppleInsider writes:

A new patent filing discovered on Thursday reveals Apple is looking into an automated zooming method that senses how close a person’s face is to a device’s display and scales the size of on-screen content accordingly, a technique that could one day enhance or even replace “pinch to zoom.”

I’m hopeful that Apple doesn’t remove the current pinch-to-zoom technology, otherwise it might get rather frustrating at times. I would certainly welcome this automatic proximity recognition method as an added enhancement.
