During the month of April of last year, Apple bought LinX, an Israeli company that dealt technologies for the production of multi-lens sensors in the field of digital photography for smartphones. Just this purchase may have opened to the world of Apple echnologies related to 3D that they might be coming their own with the new iPhone.
