Apple has been granted a patent for technology that could stop smartphone cameras being used at concerts, BBC reports.


The patent describes a smartphone camera receiving coded infrared signals beamed from emitters in public places.


The handset could then offer on-screen information or disable the camera functionality to stop pictures being taken.


One technology journalist said the technology could frustrate consumers.
