Apple has recently filed a patent for an auto correction system for tilt in your photos on the iPhone. The patent is named “Image capture device having tilt and/or perspective correction”. It would use a combination of the iPhone’s sensors, gyroscope, accelerometer and compass to automatically correct any tilt issues which happened in the photo.

This is a common problem when taking photos and this solution in theory would work. This would work for when you are editing your photo or as you are taking it. The iPhone is Flickr’s most used smart phone when uploading images to the site. So the iPhone has a popular camera and with one of Apple’s 10 best features of iOS5 being camera improvements they are clearly not forgetting about the camera.
