Apple patent for flexible electronic devices hints at bendy iPhone possibility and folding devices.
Designs and ideas about flexible devices have been around for a while, but the new US patent awarded to Apple points towards a product where pretty much everything is bendy.
According to Apple Insider, the patent incorporates malleable external and pliable internal parts such as batteries.
The website even suggests such a device could allow force-based gesture controls and fold up like a trifold wallet.
While such a device may not be coming anytime soon, Apple watchers say it shows the company’s intentions to innovate.
The news also comes after Apple was hit by the so-called Bendgate affair, which was sparked by reports that some iPhone 6 Plus users found their phones easily bent.
