Apple folding screen patent exposure: iPhone iPad with folding screen design is coming?

By  Pat Gottsdanker 2020-02-06 1951 29

Before that, many manufacturers have released products with folding screen design, and many consumers are also interested in this novel design. Recently, the patent of Apple's folding screen device has been exposed. According to the exposed documents, Apple's foldable device uses a hinged design that avoids creasing or damage to the screen when folding.

It is understood that the patent is issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and the patent display hinge mechanism will ensure that there is sufficient spacing in the folding process of the screen. When the screen expands, the active folding plate extends to cover the gap, and when it is folded, the folding plate retracts. .

In a nutshell, the Apple folding screen patent uses an inner folding design similar to Samsung's Galaxy Fold, which protects the flexible screen and greatly reduces the risk of damage to the flexible screen. However, the inner folding design will also bring obvious folding marks, and it remains to be seen how Apple will bring a better experience to users.
