This Patent Shows Off What Apple Could Be Thinking For A Bezel-Less Display
Another day, another patent.
The iPhone that could feature a bezel-less display could in fact come to fruition with the help of a patent brought to life by Apple Insider.
The patent itself shows off a variety of OLEDs arranged on a flexible surface with several spaces in between meant to help better relay information via sensor or camera. It doesn't make a lot of sense for where you'd place the camera or answer the other questions that come with having a completely bezel-less display, but it does offer a whole new set of questions instead. That's Apple though, for you. Nothing is always explicitly clear until the company comes forward and actually announces it, but that's generally part of the fun.
Of course, this patent doesn't mean Apple is absolutely planning on utilizing this sort of design -- simply looking into it, and making sure any type of idea they do decide to move forward on in the future is covered so others can't jump on it and take it all the way to the bank. And while this patent doesn't prove that Apple is going to do anything with the next iteration, it certainly does show that the company is looking forward to a future where this can certainly be done.
