Apple has successfully filed new patents with the U.S. authorities. This time it’s all about action cams, although it’s not entirely clear which direction the i-products marketer plans to take. For the probable market leader in the action camera sector, GoPro, the news caused – at least on a short term basis – a landslide as far as its stock is concerned. GoPro’s share went downhill by 12 percent throughout Wall Street trading on Tuesday, but recovered by some 5 percent on Wednesday. GoPro has felt pressure over the past few months from larger companies, notably Sony, which are hungrily eying its specialty market.
