We've Got Bad News If You Film Concerts On Your iPhone!

No Filming At Gigs

Or we've got good news if you hate watching gigs through other peoples' phone screens...

How many times have you spent your hard-earned dollar on a concert ticket to see your idol live - only to have your view end up like THIS...

Okay, so we're all guilty of sending a cheeky Snapchat from a gig, taking a cheeky crowd selfie for Instagram or recording your fave song to make sure you remember that moment FOREVER (despite never actually watching it... ever.)

Well that could all change!

Back in 2011, Apple filed a patent which would allow the iPhone camera to detect specific infrared signals and disable video recording at concerts and other specific areas, like museums.

"In some embodiments, a device may apply a watermark to detected images as an alternative to completely disabling a recording function. For example, a device may receive infrared signals with encoded data that includes a command to apply a watermark to detected images. In such an example, the device may then apply the watermark to all detected images that are displayed or stored (e.g., single pictures or frames of a video)."

We really doubt that concert promoters would put a total ban on recording concerts (or maybe they'll just have Adele yell at you instead), but it could lead to videos being watermarked or restricted.
