A zappchip, a chip that is able to perform functions on an iPhone’s hardware, has been found to be able to power up the device’s screen to produce the appearance of dimming when it’s being used as a phone’s ambient light sensor.
While the exact functions are not fully understood by the company that developed the zapp chips, they are believed to allow the device to dim the screen in an ambient light-suppressing way.
The zappmodes are the first chips found to work in the iOS 9.3.1 operating system, and were spotted by developer, developer of the zapps, zapp.com, in a report on their site.
The chip uses a technique known as “voodoo” chips, which are made from a special metal alloy that is capable of producing a very specific electrical response.
“The Zappmode is not a Zapp chip, but it is based on a Voodoo chip,” the developer, zapps.com said in its article.
“It is a VOD-like device.”
Zappmoder’s zapp is an app that allows users to change the colors and brightness of their iPhone’s display, as well as adjust the brightness of the screen itself.
This new device uses a combination of the two methods, with the ability to dim and brighten the display at will, according to the developer.
“Voodoo” means a chip has been designed to perform a specific function.
It also means that there is an underlying design concept in mind that allows the chip to work as a general purpose component, or “zapp”, the developer said.
“These chips are not designed for normal day-to-day usage of the iPhone, they work on a very special purpose and they work very well,” Zapp said in the report.
The Zapps team found a new way to turn the iPhone’s ambient lighting into a useful feature, which could also be used in other situations.
“We are working on making this new Zapp work on any iPhone without the need to connect to the internet or even make a USB cable,” the Zapps site said.
This means the Zapp can be used as an LED display, for example, or even as a flashlight.
It is also possible to use it as a way to control your iPhone’s battery life.
“Zapp is not only a great flashlight, it is also a great smartphone.
It can be controlled via a smartphone app, for instance,” the developers said.
The developers also pointed out that the zaps can be easily re-programmed by connecting the phone to an app like iLife, a programmable LED display.
However, they noted that the device is still quite fragile, and would not be suitable for people with fragile or damaged hardware.
“This is the first time I have seen such a product, it could be easily damaged,” Zapps said.
Users should not expect the device, which is being released on the App Store for free, to be widely adopted by the masses.
However, the developer has been in contact with Apple to help them develop the ZApps software, and said it is looking into making the device compatible with iPhones from next year.
