Apple Foldable Screen!

Apple reportedly began to follow in the footsteps of a number of other technology companies that have prepared folding screen devices. This info is known from the patents registered by the company.

As quoted from CNET, Sunday (02/06/2019), this screen device patent was registered at the United States patent office. In the patent, Apple only registered it as a cover and a foldable screen for electronic devices.

Unfortunately, there is no specific information about the device in question. Therefore, it is not yet known whether this device is an iPhone, iPad, or a completely new product from Apple.

Although there are no specific information, the patent attaches the design that will be used by this device. From the display shown, this device can not only be seen to one side, but has several points.

For your information, this patent has actually been known since the beginning of the year and it is not the first time a foldable screen patent was registered by Apple. In February 2019, Apple also renewed its clam shell type cellphone patent which was registered since 2011.

Through the patent update, Apple replaced its patent clamshell phone into a type of folding screen smartphone. Registered images show the company will use an OLED screen with hinges.

Nevertheless, it cannot be ascertained whether Apple will really make this product a reality. Moreover, Apple has yet to comment on the possibility of releasing a folding screen smartphone.

Currently, Apple has not shown plans to announce the smartphone. This also worries one of Apple’s founders, Steve Wozniak.

Reported on Thursday (2/28/2019), Wozniak in an interview with Bloomberg, said that Apple used to take the lead for a very long time in a number of areas such as Touch ID, facial ID, and easy payment processes with cellphones. Some even contributes Apple as the lead of the all screen smartphones or full screen phones trend, with the launch of the iPhone X in 2017.

Apple Foldable Screen’s Weaknesses

Nevertheless, Wozniak saw Apple lags behind in some aspects. One of the most noticeable is the foldable smartphone. He said he really wanted to have a folding smartphone, and that was also the most prominent technology at the moment.

“Apple has not been a leader in some areas such as foldable cellphones, and that is worrying because I really want a folding cellphone,” Wozniak said.

So far, the only brands who had announced foldable smartphones for consumers are Samsung and Huawei. Apple itself is reportedly preparing a similar product, but is likely to be released in 2020.

Although Apple will not announce folding smartphones this year, Wozniak remains optimistic about the company’s success in the future. He commented that Apple always do everything in secret to prepare for the grand reveal later.
