“Apple’s work on flexible displays began to surface back in August 2012 and several key patent pending flexible display inventions have surfaced since. Earlier this week a Korean report surfaced suggesting that Apple may be working on a bezel-free version of the iPhone,” Purcher reports. “Today’s patent revelations revolve around the technical techniques of reducing a display border by bending the sides of a display surface.”
Purcher reports, “The invention could apply to a future iPhone, iPad or wearable smartwatch-like computer and beyond.”
