apple granted patent for bendable iphone
The Patent and Trademark Office of the United States approved the patent on Tuesday to manufacture \"flexible electronic equipment\", which may include \"flexible display, flexible housing and one or more flexible internal components \".
The patent was originally filed in 2011 and may not necessarily have some knowledge of future Apple products, as many tech companies file patents to prevent competitors from licensing certain features or inventions.
Flexible equipment may be more resistant to bending or deformation than rigid equipment, while absorbing the impact of falling, the patent explains that the movement of twisting it can be used as a command trigger for actions such as opening or closing the device.
The outer chassis of the unit can be made of light plastic, thin glass, or a composite designed to withstand bending.
Internal components such as circuit boards, sensors and motors can be covered in the form of a flexible housing to prevent damage.
