According to technology news site SAI reports, Apple recently announced a patent design application. The main content of the design is that the next-generation iPhone will use all-glass, full-screen, full-transparent, and wrap-around screen body design.
The technology website Patently Apple which focuses exclusively on Apple technology developments announced this new iPhone design draft.
Patently Apple also summarized the main contents of this Apple technology patent: “Today’s technological innovation focuses on softness and wrap-around screen, which can use aluminum, glass or transparent design. This future iPhone design does not provide any physical buttons, so when the users want to adjust the volume of this iPhone, just simply hand hover next to the display, then you will be able to see the corresponding virtual control buttons. With its unique dual-screen design, this new body can also create 3D visual effects. Undoubtedly it is one of Apple’s most popular technological innovations this year.”
SAI said that this Apple patent application looks very good. It needs to be pointed out that, from past experience, Apple will apply for patents for its large number of new products and technologies, but after these patents are granted, there are a large number of patents never used into market products.
It can be seen that after Apple applied patents for new generation iPhone design, the cover could become the prototype design of the iPhone 6 or iPhone 7, but it can also be shelved, and will not be seen in real product in the market.
