Apple Files Patent for Display With Private Viewing Mode

Apple has filed a patent for a display that could implement 'privacy mode' by steering light towards the intended viewer, according to PatentlyApple.

The main focus of Apple's patent appears to be about a method of controlling the viewing angle of a display so that a user could implement a unique privacy type of function that restricts viewing of the display to only the one looking at the display directly in front of it. All peripheral viewing is locked out by controlling display elements that the patent painfully describes in detail.

Apple writes that the display's privacy mode could be enabled by touching the corner of the screen which would bring up privacy mode options and ability to change the angle of the display.
