Apple’s Future iPhones Could Feature Self-Healing Display

KEY POINTS

  • Apple is working on a slew of new technologies for upcoming devices
  • One such technology is a “self-healing” display
  • The technology might be used for future iPhones

A new patent application shows that Apple is hard at work in creating functional and durable flexible displays that will be used for its future devices, such as a foldable iPhone. The technology described in the new filing reveals that the company is working on a display that’s capable of “healing” itself from the damages it might sustain during normal use.

The new patent application, titled “Electronic Devices With Flexible Display Cover Layers,” was recently published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. In it, inventors talked about one of the ways that Apple could make a foldable iPhone.

The inventors described a device that has a flexible display comprised of several parts, including two rigid display cover layers that are joined together by a flexible display cover layer in the middle. The flexible part allows the device to be bent in the same way today’s foldable smartphones are folded.

What’s interesting about the patent application is the inventors’ repeated mention of a layer made of material that possesses “self healing” properties. They said this layer “may be formed across the entire display cover layer or may be formed only in the flexible region of the display cover layer.”

The inventors said that the layer can be made of elastomer, which is stretchable and can possess the ability to return to its original

Dance in the age of coronavirus: Cleveland’s professional troupes display creativity in 2020 fall season programming

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Different as they are, Cleveland’s major dance groups are alike in evincing one important quality during the coronavirus pandemic: creativity.

Unable to proceed as normal, to perform for live audiences in their usual venues, all have displayed balletic flexibility and remarkable haste in efforts to amend or wholly redesign their fall seasons.

“We’re talking about a significant change to our lifestyle,” said Margaret Carlson, producing artistic director of Verb Ballets. “We’re experimenting with different ways of reaching audiences. It’s all an experimental process.”

For some, the experiment already has been underway for months. Many spent the summer finding larger studios, learning to dance while wearing masks, and devising ways to connect with patrons online or in other socially distant manners.

Others, meanwhile, have had to act more quickly. They’re now drafting new game-plans for the fall, having waited out the summer in the hope that larger audiences would be permitted to gather indoors by this point. One troupe, Neos Dance Theatre, went and remains on hiatus during the pandemic, and is now mulling a company-wide restructuring.

“There’s a lot of learning curve here,” said Pam Young, executive director of DanceCleveland, noting that with so much uncertainty in the world, “the best we can do right now is put dates on the calendar by which we have to make decisions.”

Cleveland Ballet had an ambitious fall season on the horizon, including a production of “The Magic Flute” at Playhouse Square. That, though, became unfeasible with Playhouse Square remaining closed and indoor gatherings still limited.

Luckily, it found an alternative. Just before the weather changed too dramatically, the company put together an Ohio tour called “Outside the Box,” a whirlwind string of outdoor shows at Stan Hywet Hall and vineyards in Aurora and Canton. Thus will “The Magic Flute”
