Apple latest patent reveals an innovative foldable display that is crack-resistant.
According to Gizmochina, the new patent was granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office and has the patent number US-20230011092-A1.
This could help with the fragility of foldable devices, which is a major concern.
The new technology’s display has many layers, including a flexible substrate, a thin-film transistor layer, and a protective layer.
The protective layer is designed to prevent cracks from occurring in the flexible substrate, which is the most vulnerable part of the display.
The iPhone maker has also been granted a patent for a self-healing display.
This technology is supposed to help the display to recover from minor scratches, which is another prevalent concern with foldable devices.
Despite the fact that many experts believe a folding iPhone is unlikely, there have been rumors regarding a possible foldable iPad.
This would allow the tech giant to test and enhance the technology before perhaps releasing a foldable iPhone.
Since the iPad is a lesser-important product in the company’s lineup than the iPhone, a foldable iPad would also be less risky for the tech giant, the report said.
