Apple patent details future curved display

iPhone 6 concept

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted Apple a patent describing a “curved touch sensor” that was filed by the company three years ago.

The documents detail the method used to apply the thin film on a flexible substrate, and then applying heat and curving it.

A layer of special film is designed to avoid damage during heating.

It isn’t yet certain whether such a feature could be implemented in Apple’s next devices, but flexible displays will definitely play an important role in the smartphone market.
