According to Appleinsider, with the new software update supposedly coming on January 10th, iOS 10.3 will include a feature called “Theatre Mode.”
This rumour was started by a known Apple leaker named Sonny Dickson, who recently shared a few tweets tipping off Apple users that “Theatre” will appear as a popcorn-shaped icon in the Control Centre.
The new mode is pretty self explanatory. Basically, people think that once you turn it on, it will dim your phone screen, silence notifications and maybe even block incoming calls.
It’s understandable for emergencies, but let’s be real. If you’re planning on going to a movie, you’re probably not hovering over your phone waiting for an important call or text anyway.
Don’t most people who are paying to go see a movie actually want to see the movie? I get being on your phone while watching something at home, but not in a theatre. I pay good money to escape reality for those sweet 90 minutes!
I don’t know, maybe I’m just old…
