Although the iPhone has already proven itself to be an extremely useful little device, Apple (AAPL) has some even bigger plans for its popular smartphone in mind: Basically, it wants the iPhone to be the central remote control for every key gadget and appliance in users’ homes. Patently Apple has found a new patent application filed by Apple showing the iPhone’s future NFC capabilities being used for a wide variety of functions, including “being able to control standalone cameras, projectors, in-home security systems, lawn sprinkler systems, your thermostat, garage door and more.” The application also shows a spiffed-up version of the Apple TV that “could one day control cable or satellite television programming and video game play via a video game controller.”
