Apple Working On A New Protective Finish For Displays On iPad Pros and Macs
The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) published a new patent application discussing Apple’s new move for the displays of iPad Pros and Mac devices. According to Apple, the new display will have a visually imperceptible texture that will provide tactile sensations to the object contacting the surface of the device.
Also, it seems like Apple is planning to apply a new finish on displays for iOS and Macs devices that make use of Apple Pencil similar to the iPad Pro.
Meanwhile, Apple recently found that many of the leading smartphone companies make use of an optically substrate for the protective cover of the display devices such as sapphire, glass or plastic. These optically clear substrates are either manufactured or processed by the companies to have a particular type of surface finish.
The optical substrates are also responsible for affecting the contrast, brightness as well as other characteristics of the image when the output is displayed on the electronic device.
Apple now plans to develop a substrate that has a textured surface and which is visually imperceptible.
As per reports, the patent application for the modification of displays was originally filed by Apple in the quarter second of 2016.
