Previously we wrote about the fact that the iPad Pro will receive a special digital pen. As it turned out, this stylus will not only facilitate the solution of creative and different work tasks on the touch display, but also will simplify the typing. Patent office published a new Apple patent application that describes the technology of handwriting recognition.
A document entitled “User interface continuous handwriting” provides the ability to automatically translate handwritten text into characters. Moreover, the described method of entering is as easy as writing on ordinary paper.
Still the challenge was the limitations that determine the time cleaning the field for entering text and its border. Apple has developed a technology for dynamic handling of the text as you write. Letters will be recognized immediately, and written text to go into the background, allowing to write new material.
Apple describes the virtual panel keys for text editing. With its help it will be possible to remove the written symbols, write them and make other necessary manual action letter.
The authors of the patent are Apple engineers Deborah goldsmith and Karen Mishra. The application was registered in the autumn of last year.
The most probable date of announcement of the iPad Pro is considered to be autumn this year. According to rumors, the tablet will be the core Apple A9X, 2 GB of RAM and a new USB-C, installed in a 12-inch MacBook.
