You may be able to manage your iPhone someday just by giving it a little squeeze.
A patent granted to Apple today by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office details a housing for a mobile device that responds to the pressure of your touch or squeeze. Known as "Sensing capacitance changes of a housing of an electronic device," the patent uses a mobile phone as one example. But could just as easily work with portable music players, laptops, and other electronic devices.
Today's touch-screen devices already react to the tap of a finger. But Apple's invention would take that further by reacting differently based on how much pressure you apply when you touch, squeeze, or otherwise deform the device's housing.

An iPhone Mini priced at $330 in China would provide a healthy shot in the arm to Apple's Chinese smartphone sales, according to Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty.
A low-priced iPhone would add another 20 percent to the 10 percent Chinese market share currently addressed by the iPhone 5, the analyst said today. Smartphone prices are starting to stabilize in China, which will open up the market for such a phone. But a deal with China Mobile is also key.
Apple currently sells the iPhone to Chinese consumers through China Unicom and China Telecom. The company has been trying to cook up a deal with China Mobile, the country's largest carrier, but has run into stumbling blocks.
Still, the analyst sees China Mobile as a major contributor to the growth of the iPhone, citing a few different factors. First, Apple would launch a new Mini model. Second, legislation for TD-LTE licenses and number portability could pass later this year or in 2014. And third, China Mobile would be more open to subsidizing higher-end smartphones on a TD-LTE network.

Apple has promised to fix a flaw that allows anyone to bypass the lockscreen on a device running iOS 6.1.
The company has confirmed the issue in a statement sent to ZDNet on Friday, and promised to fix it, although it did not say when.
"Apple takes user security very seriously. We are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update," an Apple spokesman said.
