Apple patents virtual selfies, take group selfies from any corner of the world

Apple, which introduces a new trend every year in terms of technology, has now received a patent that is really surprising. The US Patent and Trademark Office has approved the patent of Apple’s virtual selfie. Getting this patent means that iPhone users will be able to take group selfies with their friends from any corner of the world in the coming time.

Usually, group selfies require all people to be together, but it is not necessary to do so after Apple’s payment. Apple had applied for this patent two years ago. Patently according to Apple, this patent will use computing devices that will prepare the synthetic group selfie.

What is the Synthetic group selfie?

Synthetic group selfies are a composition of different selfies that are merged into an image. The device will use video images, live videos, and photos. In synthetic group selfies, users will also have the option to edit selfies. In addition, all users who participate in group selfies will also be able to decide their positions virtually.

All users will have to take selfies on their phones and remove the background. The virtual group selfie can then be prepared with selfies of all users, though it is not yet clear when this feature will be released to iPhone users.
