Apple has been granted a patent for a crack-resistant folding screen

A patent for a crack-resistant folding screen has been granted to Apple.

It’s been a long time since the first foldable phone was released. This design is also no longer considered new and has progressed significantly in its perfection.

And now it’s up to Apple to pay attention to this technology as well.

Apple has been granted a patent for a crack-resistant folding screen

One of the most important issues that Apple frequently addresses is durability. This is understandable given that folding phones are frequently more prone to cracking than bar designs.

The company recently received a patent (NoUS-20230011092-A1) for a crack-resistant folding screen that could appear in future devices. Patently Apple first brought this information to light in an in-depth article.

This technology has the potential to address one of the main concerns that users have about foldable and expandable devices today. Many buyers will be persuaded to try this novel style. It should be noted that this is not the first time Apple has attempted to improve the durability of folding screen technology.

In 2022, Apple was granted a patent for a self-healing display that could theoretically recover from minor scratches, a problem that modern foldables are particularly prone to. right. However, the possibility of a trailblazing foldable iPhone appears remote.

For the time being, leaks point to a foldable iPad, which would allow Apple to experiment with and refine the technology. Because the iPad is a relatively minor product in the Cupertino company’s portfolio, this scenario appears plausible.

The first-generation foldable phone is a complicated subject (as was the first generation of Samsung devices), and a foldable iPad could provide Apple with an opportunity to avoid those issues. In the long run, mistakes are far more damaging. As more companies enter this new market, such as the Google Pixel Fold, it appears that an Apple foldable phone is not far off.
