Apple has patented the Flexible Display Cover Electronic Device. This confirms that the development of the iPhone, equipped with a foldable screen, continues.
According to an Apple patent, an electronic device equipped with a hinge can be bent around an axis, while the screen will remain outside when folded. To reduce scratches or defects on the display, a self-healing material will be used.
The special coating will contain a layer of elastic material that can stretch and contract back to its original shape. Mydrivers mentions the memory effect in some mattresses and pillows.
Analysts believe that Apple will always have time to take a leading market share, even if the release of the first foldable smartphone iPhone takes place in a few years.
Apple always makes high demands on its own products, but iPhone 14 users report problems with the camera when shooting with third-party applications, GPS not working, smartphone freezes. Most of the issues will be fixed in iOS 16.1.
