It found worldwide success with a device that changed the way people listen to music, and now Apple wants to teach the world to sing.

A patent application submitted by Apple has revealed its plans to transform the iPod and iPhone into a mobile karaoke system that can be used to teach amateur singers to hit the right pitch and key.

There is more good news for those forced to listen; the technology will be capable of making the off-key warbling sound in-tune.

The device will allow users to select songs to sing along with, displaying the lyrics as a video on screen. As the user sings, the technology will analyze their voice and compare it with how the song is supposed to sound.

If the singer hits the pitch and key flawlessly, they will be rewarded by having their performance enhanced to give a ''concert hall'' effect.

When they are off key, or sing at the wrong pitch, the device will amplify their mistake.

The system would also be able to alter the output going to speakers, so an audience would not have to tolerate bad singing. As an alternative, it would ''fuzz'' the singer's voice to cover up the fact they are off key.

In addition to this, the users are allowed to record their performances and edit them later, while also being able to see how they had performed compared to the original.

As for now, Apple refused to comment on how it plans to develop the patent and when its karaoke system will be available on the market, but iTunes, its online music store, sells tracks under the category of karaoke.

So what will they call it? iSing?
