However, even with the patent filing, it is just a filing. Some of the things such as heartbeat detection is not a cost reality.

Apple if they wanted to win the war with the developers that are providing roots to the devices such as iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch (which I believe will be the only kind of iPod in a year or two), then they can do it in the next non critical update. Here is how and why.
