Apple Potentially Working On “Theater Mode” Texting Feature to iPhone

By  | 


Sony Dickson (via Collider) alleges that an update that will be available in iOS 10.3 will have a “theater mode.” While no concrete details on the rumor have been leaked, an Apple patent from 2012 had a very similar concept.

Here’s a description…

“This policy enforcement capability is useful for a variety of reasons, including for example to disable noise and/or light emanating from wireless devices (such as at a movie theater), for preventing wireless devices from communicating with other wireless devices (such as in academic settings), and for forcing certain electronic devices to enter “sleep mode” when entering a sensitive area.”
