9. A method for reducing image flicker of an apparatus capable of capturing images, the method comprises:
detecting whether a telecom operator is currently offering a telecommunication service to the apparatus;
searching a mapping history of utility frequencies from a storage device and determining whether the telecom operator is mapped a utility frequency after detecting that the telecom operator to be currently offering the telecommunication service to the apparatus;
obtaining the utility frequency mapped to the telecom operator from the mapping history to be a current utility frequency after determining the utility frequency is mapped to the telecom operator; and
adjusting an exposure time for capturing images according to the current utility frequency,
the method further comprises:
obtaining the current frequency by one or more other resources after detecting that no telecom operator is currently offering a telecommunication service to the apparatus.
