A newly granted patent application shows that Apple has moved further into an all-glass device.

The patent, called "Glass-encased Electronic Device," was granted to Apple earlier today by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.The study focused on electronic devices with six-sided glass shells and glass shells that extend all the way around the device.

For a device like the iPhone, Apple's patent covers how a touchscreen display can be enclosed "within an internal volume and placed near at least part of each side of a six-sided glass case." These displays have the flexibility to accommodate the internal curves of the case and can provide additional touch input areas.

The patent explains how glass can be bent, tapered and overlapped to create an all-glass shell that provides space for components such as speakers and microphones.Apple also said that some glass surfaces may have different textures to distinguish them from nearby input areas.

The application document also shows how the device's software can be combined with an all-glass design to dynamically adjust based on how the user holds and positions the device, such as additional information displayed on the outer edges and UI elements that move to the surfaces they interact with.

The application also shows how other devices, such as the Apple Watch and cylindrical Mac Pro devices, can have an all-glass case and take advantage of its inner surface.
