Apple has purchased a UK-based startup Spectral Edgewhose technology could be utilized to enhance photographs taken on iPhones, as per the information on Thursday made public.
Spectral Edge was spun out from the University of East Anglia research, and it has created a technology forcomputational photography that could mix information from an infrared lens and standard lens to upgrade the quality of photographs. The colors are a lot more vibrant with the new tech as compared to the previous one.
With the on-going continual competition as to see who can come with a better camera, it is very easy to understand as to why Apple made a decision to purchase the organization with technology that can improve the quality of photographs this significantly. Nevertheless, it is still unclear if Apple will give this infrared tech something to do in the coming iPhone.Also, you are not able to purchase an iPhone with an infrared camera, until now.
There is however the opportunity a future iPhone might have one of these. In some cases, Apple purchases organizations only for the talent, and maybe Apple has given the Spectral Edge group something to do on few other enhancing-photograph-quality task. In fact, the organization hardly clarifies why it purchases small companies, and the possible effects of such deals can at times take a very long time for fruitful results.
It is still unclear as to how much Apple has paid for Spectral Edge. However, the organization raised $5.3Mlast year in a funding round, hence it seems it was on the smaller side. Truth to be told, there are likely a ton of other Spectral Edge-sized organizations that have helped Apple of which no one has ever known about.Tim Cook, the AppleCEO,also claimed in May that every 2 to 3 weeks, it purchases an organization.
