More Speculation About 3D User Interface Coming to iOS Devices
It's certainly a prospect we've heard of and discussed before. But only now have we seen conclusive evidence from Apple that this rumored possibility may ultimately become reality.
On Thursday, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that illustrates in immense detail how Apple may deploy motion sensors to create a pretty sweet virtual three-dimensional interface for iDevices.
Here's how Apple describes the technology:
A three-dimensional ("3D") display environment for mobile device is disclosed that uses orientation data from one or more onboard sensors to automatically determine and display a perspective projection of the 3D display environment based on the orientation data without the user physically interacting with (e.g., touching) the display.

That would be pretty cool to see 3d capabilities on the iPhone. Just not sure it would look that great on the 3.5 inch screen.

Yea deff needs to upgrade the screen size! It will be comming with the remake for the iphone 5!

Yeah I'd think Apple would certainly enhance and upgrade the screen size and GUI. I sure as hell hope to see a larger screen and I'd think an entirely new iOS would be deployed with the iPhone 5, 6, etc (please don't make this a debate on what it'll be called), but who knows with Apple. They really need to do away with the stock folder and multitasking BG's. It's hideous. They could do a much better job visually that's for sure. I'd love to see this 3D interface.They should get FIF7Y to design EVERYTHING visual. He's one hell of a theme designer.

Guys I really doubt....no....really really REALLY doubt this tech is going to be integrated in the next generation of iDevices, or the next.El Zurdo
