Apple Invents an Automated Screen Protector System for the 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, don’t breathe a sigh of relief yet clumsy folk because this is only a patent – there’s no guarantee Apple will ever put this into production, rather it has filed to the US Patent and Trademark Office as a safeguard against anyone else nabbing their idea. 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. 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.

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. 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. The inclusion of advance technology screen protectors sounds good and would be placed on four corners of the display. “A retractable bumper device that can be used to prevent damage to the glass phone screens”. 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. 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. More patent details state that the technology included in the sensors will be Global Positioning System, acceleration sensors, a gyroscope and ultrasonic emitters. 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 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.

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. 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.
