Remix Example 2: Flashlight feature on Smart Phones

I remember when all iPhones were sent the ability to change to the iOS7 software update. Or if you purchased the new 5c or 5s, your phone already came with it. The software gave all iPhones many new features, one in particular that I want to write about is the flashlight.

The image illustrates the flashlight feature which makes the flash light next to the camera stay on as if it were a real flashlight. When I showed this to my friend Katie she said “they copied the android!” and showed me her phone had the ability to do the same thing.

This flashlight feature that was first featured on the Android was then copied by Apple and used in the new iPhone iOS7 software update. By coping this feature they made a more convenient feature for all iPhone users.

  1. This may be one of my most used remixes!

    We see these sorts of remixes all the time in technology both in functionality (as you described) and in the way we represent things visually (like the “floppy disc” as the save icon in most programs).
