Apple's Newly Filed Patent Application Hints The Company Is In The Work Of Foldable iPhones

It seems like all of the major smartphone manufacturers are embracing full-screen on their smartphones. The “foldable phone” topic apparently is going away. However, this does not mean that manufacturers have given up the possibility of this form of design. Apple, for example, just filed a new patent application for its future foldable iPhones.


Described as "Electronic Devices with Flexible Displays." The patent was originally filed on June 8, 2016, which refers to a transparent display that uses a "grooves or other recesses" to bend in the middle, so when you fold the screen, it will get thinned on the display layer.

In order to prevent such designs from causing severe damage to the screen, the patent discusses the use of "elastic materials, fluids and other materials" to fill the recessed areas in the middle.

Do you look forward to the foldable iPhone? Let’s us know in the comment section below!
