Apple designed a screen that can heal itself
Not only taking care of thelatest smartphone developments, but the vendor is also focusing on developing the constituent technology as well. This is indicated by Apple which recently filed a patent application for the latest display technology with extraordinary sophistication.
Because the patent says that this Smartphone panel can heal itself, and it is strongly suspected that this panel will later be applied to a folding screen iPhone . Of course this device would later suit such a cell phone.
Because this folding screen smartphone itself will invite dust and other dirt to be trapped, so that this can later damage the screen. With the use of panels like this, the device will be more resilient, because the damage caused by small objects like that can be restored by the screen, without having to manually repair the user.
“During the operation of the device, the folding screen may be scratched or dented. To enhance the aesthetics of the device, it is necessary to minimize the presence of scratches, dents, or other imperfections. The screen coating will be made of material that can heal itself, “that’s what Apple said in the patent application.
It is also explained in this patent that ideally a folding screen device can repair itself automatically. This process will of course be carried out by the system and device, when the iPhone is not being used by the user, such as when charging or at night when the user is resting.
As reported by 9to5Mac , it is said that Apple illustrates that this technology will use heat as a medium for self-healing. The outer layer of the screen will include a transparent conductor and will form a heating layer on the outside of the screen.
“This layer can be used to generate heat to stimulate self-healing. The coating can also be used to generate heat in response to user input, according to a predetermined schedule, or when electronic devices are recharged, “explained Apple again.
Because it is still in a patent, making the Apple company also takes a long time to apply it for real, let alone launching it to the market. Given this tight competitor, Samsung itself also rarely offers the latest technology that comes from a patent in a short time.
