Apple Gets Awarded With Attachable Camera Lens Patent 1

It looks like Marc Barros is on to something when he launched the Moment smartphone camera lens project. Patents that are similar in concept with the Moment portable lenses were recently awarded to Apple. The two patents consist of a magnetic add-on lenses with alignment ridge, and a removable back panel for attaching accessories like a portable lens. With these patents, we can now expect that Apple is serious in making their iOS devices on par with the likes of Sony, who, by the way, released a couple of portable camera lenses for Xperia phones last year. While Apple’s camera lenses are still probably on the drawing board, you should check out the Moment Kickstarter project.
