Will Apple’s Next Generation of Devices Feature This Display Tech?
Will Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) next iPhones and iPads feature this new anti-reflective technology? A recently filed patent uncovered by Patently Apple suggests that the Cupertino-based company is close to implementing an improved display technology in its electronic devices.
As previously reported by Patently Apple, the iPhone maker published a patent in the U.S. earlier this month titled “UV Mask with Anti-Reflection Coating and UV Absorption Material.” As described in the patent, this special display coating would protect LCD displays from being damaged by UV light and prevent image-distorting reflections.
However, the latest patent filing covers the manufacturing process and the machinery that will actually apply this anti-reflective coating on to Apple’s devices. With patents covering both the anti-reflective material and the manufacturing process, Apple appears to be in the final stages of incorporating this technology into its next generation of products.
