We have some interesting news to bring you now, as it has been reported that Apple are exploring the possibility of releasing a standalone camera device, after a new patent was secured this week.

As reported from Gizmodo, Apple has secured a patent which is all to do about detecting color correction within a camera. If you head over to their website, you’ll be able to see an image of the patent in question.

The patent is straight forward: the idea of color correction in Apple’s device, would see it able to identify colors effectively when taking pictures – rather than just taking pictures depending on the lighting conditions.

What are your thoughts on Apple releasing a camera device in the market? Will it turn to gold like most of their other products? Most likely.

This patent clearly shows they are thinking about it though – give us your reaction to this.
