Apple has just renewed its exclusive licensing deal with LiquidMetal, a fairly exotic metal alloy that behaves like plastic, and today it was granted a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for use of that material combined with glass displays, including those made by sapphire. The patent describes the process of bonding a display to a LiquidMetal device case, which could form the basis for a LiquidMetal-built future iPhone, iPad or iWatch. Already, its rumored that the company will employ sapphire glass in its upcoming iPhone 6.
