Rumors of an invention from Apple Corporation — iPhones with an unusual form factor — confirmed by obtaining a patent. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has patented the company’s production of the iPhone, which will have a waterfall screen.

In the patent annotation , it is indicated that the sensor sensors on the iPhone are under glass along the front, bottom and side surfaces of the smartphone. Therefore, in the device patented from Apple, it is possible to enter on each of its centimeters. It is too early to discuss the practicality of this decision. It remains unclear how to wear a device that will not have a case. After all, it is simply impossible to wear it to the device.

Regarding the novelty of the invention, the patent notes the possibility of using touch sensors on the back panel in gaming applications without first closing the screen. For side touch sensors, you can use them to control the camera, volume slider, brightness, and contrast.

It should be noted that obtaining a patent is not a guarantee of one hundred percent fulfillment of the declared technologies in production.

Earlier, we reported that Apple is busy developing the first flexible folding device. This was told by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
