One of the most annoying parts of watching a movie nowadays are the people who keep on checking their phones inside the cinema. Despite countless reminders posted at the entrance and before the film starts, some people just can't keep their phones away even for just a few hours.
Sure, the phones are on silent mode, but the bright light from the handsets are just distracting for some moviegoers.
As a solution, future Apple devices might receive a new update when iOS 10.3 comes out this January. A new feature called Theatre Mode will be included in iPhones and iPads in order to prevent people from using smartphones inside cinemas.
The rumor was spread by Apple scooper Sonny Dickson in one of his Tweets.
Though you can just simply turn off your phone once inside the theatre, rumors suggest that the update can be automatically triggered via GPS location. This means that every time you watch a movie in the cinema, you'll have no control of your iPhone or iPad. The only way to deactivate the Theatre Mode is to step outside the theater.
Once the update rolls out, there might still be an option to edit the settings by pressing a popcorn-shaped icon in the iPhone control center.
