New Parents Can Care For Child After Trading In Mobile

Parents who trade-in a mobile may have one more reason to choose an iPhone as its replacement, after a new baby monitor is released.

Boston.com explains the device is due out later this year and will allow mums and dads to control a number of aspects of their offspring's nursery.

This includes the music being played and its volume, as well as setting alarms for when the space becomes too hot or dry.

The monitor also acts as a movement detector, so parents can rush to their baby's side if a little one gets restless, while it even has a microphone to capture any sounds – such as crying – coming from a nursery, explains the website.

And perhaps the most useful aspect of all is its three-megapixel camera, which can be put to good use by beaming an infrared picture straight back to an iPhone.

The latest incarnation of Apple's flagship model is the iPhone 4, which was released in the UK last June.
