Apple has patented a new urgent care system for Apple Watch that could send an alert to friends or family when it detects that the user requires medical attention. It is capable of monitoring vital signs to detect heart problems and more.
In the future, at some point, it’s expected that Apple will use an OLED display. But now rumblings are growing that it could mean a wraparound display, too.
What Apple is doing with its in-ear earbuds, or EarPods, remains a mystery, but the general consensus at this point is that the company is, at the very least, ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack in the upcoming “iPhone 7.”
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted Apple a staggering 54 new patents today, one of which details a flexible OLED display for use in an iPhone.
A new Apple patent application published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office reveals the Cupertino company is working on a system that would allow Apple Watch to automatically adjust the volume on your iPhone based on ambient noise.
The invention could make your iPhone louder in noisy bars or busy streets, and quieter when you’re in a library or the office.
Apple brought us multitouch, Retina displays, and 3D Touch, and according to a new patent filing, it is gearing up to make touchscreens even smarter. The company has developed a way in which it can create displays that detect hovering fingers for special gestures.
Apple’s no stranger to patent applications detailing what technology from the company might look like in the future. Or, at least, experimenting with plenty of ideas.
