It seems that the controversial bendgate is already forgotten, but Apple just received the grant of a patent that specifically talks about the ability of future electronic devices would signature be flexible.
The patent, which was requested in September 2011, has been granted now, and that could mean that future mobile (not mobile) devices Apple could be equipped with curved screens. Here we imagine iPhones or iPads, but also monitors or televisions if the signature curved Cupertino finally bet by this type of segment, which a priori seems unlikely.
The patent describes various aspects that characterize these products, such as the display type, sensors, speakers, batteries or materials. These products seem to metal instead of plastic, glass and composite fibers would be used to allow a better resistance in the day.
Those responsible for drafting the Apple patent application on it that indicated flexible electronic devices " may be more resistant to damage in case of falls because the flexible device can bend or deform while absorbing the impact ."
In addition to the properties of these flexible devices Apple also describes new ways to interact with a flexible iPhone, including support for recognizing gestures in which the force with which we perform certain actions would set forward. For now LG is the only manufacturer that has invested heavily in these devices- the LG G Flex 2 has been presented at the CES - but so far these curved screens appear to have curdled among consumers.
