Re: Apple Granted Patent: Disable Cameras According To Location

the fix for this is to locate the wi-fi chip, and disable it. though do to the very small size, it won't be very easy.

Couldn't you just make a little "Faraday Cover" device with a little gap over the lens?

Although I think people have already stumbled on the simpler alternative of not buying any technology products that have this feature.

The wifi feature, or the disable feature? Not sure the disable feature will be prominently advertised.......

No. Probably not. But I would imagine that those curious would be able to know which devices have it.
