“On August 1, 2013, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that reveals a real-time enterprise centric app-sharing feature for future FaceTime video conferences,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.
“Microsoft recently ran an ad mocking the iPad’s inability to share apps during a video conference seamlessly,” Purcher reports. “Apple’s latest invention effortlessly answers that void and goes far beyond by including a privacy information mode and more.”
Purcher reports, “In some embodiments, the application being shared may occupy the entire screen or a majority of the screen, and no video may be overlaid on the application. During application sharing, either or both of video and audio may be suspended or terminated, depending on the embodiment and/or the application being shared. Apple states that application sharing will be available for the iPhone, iPad, Macs and digital camera.”
