Apple Has Patented a Flexible, Rollable Display

Published Sep 06 2021 at 9:03 AM GMT
  • Apple has now registered a patent at the United States Patents and Trademark Office for a flexible, rolling display.
  • As the filing shows, the tech giant is now looking at developing a device featuring two separate housings which roll out to reveal a flat display in the center.
  • Part of the patent also indicates that the devices could possibly feature both a rigid display and a rollable screen, both working together when expanded to offer a better user experience.
  • While no specific device has been mentioned in the filing, Apple may very well utilize these rollable displays in a future generation of iPhones or iPads, the company's two products most relevant to technology like this.
  • Of course, large tech companies like Apple which have massive research and development departments will often patent new ideas and technologies which never end up reaching the production line or seeing a commercial release, and the company itself hasn't announced any products so far with a flexible or rollable display, so fans should definitely stay tuned for more information to come.
