As Apple writes in the patent application filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, filing the proposed concept allows the device to repair itself without the user having to manually intervene.
In theory, the folding screen self-healing can be activated automatically, and the foldable screen self-healing can be activated according to a pre-set schedule.
Heat, light, electric current, or any other type of external stimulus is used to fix the protective layer over the screen.
The patent application also says: The screen cover of the virtual machine may include a layer of elastomer that can lose its shape and restore it to preserve the sensitive interior of the device.
In theory, this material makes the foldable screen cover more durable.
Several tech companies, such as Samsung, make various styles of foldable phones, but Apple’s suggested self-repair feature adds a unique twist to these devices.
Samsung’s first foldable device, the Galaxy Fold, suffered from screen durability issues and a late release of the phone after several review units failed.
The core self-healing technology appears in at least one smartphone, the LG G Flex, released in 2013.
The LG phone has a self-healing back cover that was supposed to fix small scratches, like knife scrapes, but it wasn’t that effective.
There is no indication that Apple will soon launch a foldable phone with self-healing materials.
And Apple appears to have been studying foldable phones for years, with other patent applications showing mockups of what a foldable iPhone would look like should it happen.
