Apple Invents an Automated Screen Protector System for the iPhone.

The above image shows how these tabs could potentially work, by using a series of rotary motor to eject them at just the time they’re needed, after which they could retract back into your iPhone.While the displays on our phone are usually made from pretty sturdy glass that can withstand scratches, many of us still like to rely on screen protectors for that peace of mind. However screen protectors aren’t permanent and eventually they will start getting scratched and worn, but Innerexile’s screen protector might last you a bit longer.

Filing a patent with the Patent and Trademark Office simply ensures none of Apple’s competitors are able to use the active screen protection concept in any of their devices. After the impact has (hopefully) been absorbed the iPhone will check its sensors or use a preset timer to make sure the event is over and retract the bumpers “flush to the unit” using built-in mini motors. The illustrations in the document mention the use of motors, which will have a separate mechanism to move a pinion when connected to these screen protectors. We will provide you with more details on the next iPhone but since Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have just been officially released; we doubt that we could rely on information that is coming out this early. Apple is trying to solve the issue with “bumpers”. “When the sensor detects a drop event, the screen protectors move from the retracted to extended position, functioning as a shock absorber and preventing the screen from connecting with a surface that the electronic device contacts”, the patent notes.

The idea here is that if and when your screen protector gets scratched, the liquid will then filled up those scratch voids quickly so that it gives you the illusion that it is self-healing. We’re all hopeful that one day manufacturers will be able to offer shatterproof glass, but Apple has another plan that seems insane, but it just might be what the doctor ordered. Otherwise, it could actually make the iPhone 7 smaller to allow people to use it with one hand and take steps to improve the battery life on the device.

The coolest thing about these protectors is that they would adjust as soon it senses danger and would re-adjust once the sensors signal that the danger has vanished. The system is another of the company’s famous patents and details a hidden bumper mechanism that extends outwards over the screen to absorb any impact when the phone is dropped. These tabs may be formed of various flexible and/or rigid materials such as plastic, plastic film, polyethylene terephthalate or other polymers, metal, thin film metal, combinations thereof, and/or other such materials.

If Apple can get it up and running in a design that is pleasing to the eyes, and also cost-effective, then we see no reason for it not be successful. The Golden State Warriors guard and reigning league MVP showed up in a new Apple ad posted on Sunday showing off his well known shooting skills while demonstrating the slow motion playback abilities of the iPhone 6S.
