Apple’s Plans For Folding iPhone, AirPods 2, AI and Smart Glove
Apple is planning for a foldable iPhone, AirPods, AI and Smart Gloves. In order to release new products this year. Apple has got patents for a new foldable display system. A hinge system that uses great to make display flexible.
According to the application, “the bend axis may be self-heated by illuminating pixels in the portion of the display that overlap the bend axis or may be heated using a heating element or other heating structure that provides heat to the portion of the display overlapping the bend axis.”
Apple has had many patents with themselves. And simply having patent doesn’t mean that they would necessarily use the principle in there products. As far as the rumours are concerned, Apple is planning for conventional form factors of iPhone this year, and it may be that they release a foldable phone in 2020. Heat is good solution, because heat will cause the display to become bendable. The cold displays can easily crack but that is not the case when heated.
The heat has its own problems, heat can demand more power from battery, and it always have a threat of damaging other small components around the heating element.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is hoping that a foldable iPhone will be announced in the near future.
Apple surely has many things in the mix, Apple is allegedly launching the AirPods 2 soon. The Air Pods 2 have been long awaited and finally it is happening, with it. Some people also speculate that they can get some update Apple #AirPower also, which is there wireless charging dock long due.
Another #patent that Apple has got itself a patent for a new glove where they would develop finger tips to be worn while typing. These would give people feeling of a actual keyboard when typing on #iPad or #iPhone. Allowing people to have better feeling. It would allow people to have easier typing, and getting better haptic feedback.
Apple has reshuffled its team for AI also. They are having a reshuffle of employees in there autonomous driving team. Apple was first to bring Digital assistant in market.
