Apple patents a new Light Splitting Camera for iPhone

March 25, 2015: As AppleInsider reports, Apple reportedly published a patent on Tuesday on a new technology for camera sensor which has the ability to split the light using three sensors. The three sensors will each capture a separate colour component, a special light-splitting cube which divides light entering the camera into red, green and blue wavelengths.

Since they don't need the special filters or algorithm to separate color after capturing image, it will reduce the noise from the image, improves resolution and the quality of image and videos. This technology commonly found in camcorders.

Apple camera is already known for it's quality, and with this patent, Apple added another feather in their cap. This patent was first filed in 2011 and credits Steven Webster and Ning Y Chan as its inventors.
