Apple was granted no less than 37 new patents today, all of them officially published by the U.S Patent and Trademark Office.
Among them, we can find the approval for AirPower’s ‘multi-device charging’ and for something related to an iPhone with a wraparound display that also covers device tilt detection.
This particular detail is described as an “electronic device defined in claim 2 wherein the control circuitry changes the content by flipping pages of text displayed on the flexible display layer based on the tilt angle“, according to the patent.
Apple also has a few patents that relate to smart fabric integration which “may include control circuitry that gathers user input from the input circuitry and wireless communications circuitry that the control circuitry uses to transmit remote control commands and other wireless signals in response information from the input circuitry.”
Even so, as nice as all of these patents sound, if a company has a patent registered under its name, their presence is not an indicator that these products will see the light of day anytime soon.
