Apple Awarded with a Curved Touch Screen Construction Patent
Apple has been awarded with a patent describing the enhanced curved touch screen technology

On Tuesday, the US Patent and Trademark Office handed Apple with such a patent which will help Apple to design a curved and touch sensitive display for its future devices.

According to Cnet , the patent, entitled “Curved Touch Sensor”, describes such a method that will enable Apple to build curved touch screens with a higher quality.

The current sensor displays have a risk of being damaged at the time of fabrication as they are very thin. The patent describes a process of solving this issue.

The process advices to put a thin film over a flexible substrate layer at the time when it becomes flat. This structure is suggested to get connected with another flexible substrate layer. Thereafter, a heat with high temperature is produced, ultimately transforms the substrate to a curved shape without causing any issue.

Apple’s two major rivals, Samsung and LG, have already revealed phones with curved displays which are doing a pretty good job in the global market. With the awarded patent, Apple is also looking forward to entering into the curved phone market and conquer it.
