Apple gets patent for Crack-resistant Foldable Display Technology

Apple has recently received patent for a foldable display that is designed to be crack-resistant by the US Patent and Trademark Office. This will bring a advantage to the company as foldable devices generally have fragile display.

According to reports, the company has got a patent with patent number US-20230011092-A1 that is related to a display, which is made up of multiple layers, including a flexible substrate, a thin-film transistor layer, and a protective layer. The protective layer is designed to prevent cracks from forming in the flexible substrate, which is the part of the display that is most susceptible to damage.

Apart from the crack-resistant display, the tech giant has also been granted a patent for a self-healing display technology, which would allow the display to recover from small scratches, which is another common issue with foldable devices.

Recently, there have been many rumors about a possible foldable iPad. However, many experts suggest that Apple may not launch a foldable iPhone. So, a foldable iPad seems possible as the company may experiment with the technology and refine it before potentially releasing a foldable iPhone.

A foldable iPad would also be less risky for the company, as the iPad is a less important product in Apple’s portfolio compared to the iPhone.

All major companies entering the foldable market like Samsung, Oppo and others. Google is also planning to launch its upcoming Pixel Fold soon. So, we believe Apple may launch a foldable device from Apple in the near future. This new patent and previous ones on self-healing displays will likely be a key factor in the development of Apple’s foldable device, bringing more durability and reliability to the foldable form factor.
