The California-based tech company, known for providing innovative technology for iPhones, iPads, Macs, and other devices, is reportedly planning to launch many new gadgets in the next few years. Among the list are the most anticipated Samsung-like foldable displays.
Notably, Apple filed a patent. According to Gizmochina, the new patent has been issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and has patent number US-20230011092-A1.
There have been numerous leaks and reports claiming Apple could come up with an iPad Pro Fold for better streaming and portability opportunities. , believes the gadget is unlikely to debut.
It is interesting to note that the tech giant has also filed a patent for a self-healing display that is expected to be manufactured using the new technology. There are multiple layers such as protective layers.
Another common problem with foldable devices is minor scratches on the display, which this technology should make possible. This gives the tech giant a chance to test and advance its technology before it potentially releases a foldable iPhone.
A foldable iPad would also be less risky for the tech giant, the report argues, because the iPad is a less important product in the company’s lineup than the iPhone.
Meanwhile, the company unveiled two of its most anticipated products, the new generation MacBook Pro and Mac Mini, at a very rare January event using the highly anticipated M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets. . Additionally, the company claims that the newly launched product is 6x faster than existing Intel-powered CPUs.
