Today, according to several media reports, according to the latest list published by the US Trademark and Patent Office (USPTO), Apple has obtained a new patent for foldable phones.In detecting that the iPhone/iPad with a flexible screen is in a falling state, the screen is automatically folded to minimize screen damage.

So far, almost all the leading players in the global smartphone market have launched their own folding screen products, but Apple has been slow to move, but combined with today's news, Apple has not given up the folding screen market. I'm just looking for a more reasonable solution.


Patent displayWhen an iPhone or iPad device with a folding screen detects a drop, fold the device quickly before hitting the ground to minimize the impact to the screen.

I have to say, the patent sounds attractive, so how on earth did it come true? It is reported that this requires the addition of a speed sensor to the device, and when the acceleration of the vertical fall of the device is detected to exceed the predetermined value, the protection mechanism will be activated in a few tenths of a second, and the device will immediately fold to reduce damage to the internal screen.


Although Apple's folding screen is not sure when it will debut, judging from this patent, Apple is also painstaking. However, Apple's payment & the ldquo; folding screen can close the screen itself when it falls off & is the rdquo; patent really necessary?

Many netizens think it is superfluous, but in my opinion, it is very necessary. When we get a new phone, what we fear most is that the phone will drop. Before we get the new phone, we have prepared the protective film and case of the phone. In order to further ensure that it is foolproof, our well-budgeted partners will also buy an insurance policy for buying broken screens. Whether it is to paste the protective film, or to buy broken screen insurance, it is to avoid unnecessary losses caused by screen damage.


You know, the screen of a folding screen phone is more fragile and more expensive to maintain than a tablet smartphone, and if it can be automatically folded in a falling state, it will greatly reduce the chance of screen damage. From the point of view of reducing user losses, the patent is reliable.

In fact, Huawei has brought a new screen protection technology to the Mate 50 series & mdash;— Huawei Kunlun Glass. It is reported thatHuawei Kunlun glass is rock solid after 24 hours, 108 processes and 1600 degrees smelting. A piece of mobile phone panel glass contains hundreds of millions of high-strength nanocrystals.Anti-impact resistance cracking, but also won the world's first Swiss SGS five-star fall resistance certification, a full 10-fold increase in anti-fall resistance.


According to the data, Huawei Mate 50 Pro is the hottest model in pre-sale, with Kunlun glass version accounting for 50 per cent of orders. Combined with the latest news, Huawei Mate X3, a folding phone to be released on March 23, will also use Kunlun glass innovative materials to bring stronger fall resistance.

Overall, through this new patented technology, we can see that Apple has made a lot of efforts on the folding screen, and it is not clear when the Apple folding screen product that supports the technology will be launched. We will have to wait patiently.

Guess what the starting price will be if Apple's folding product is really the legendary launch of ldquo; & rdquo;,.
