Apple Patents Wraparound Edge-Mounted IPhone Displays With Virtual Buttons
By DMO Affiliate
Apple had a new patent granted today for a side-mounted wraparound display that could be used to add virtual buttons to the edges of future iPhones in place of physical controls. Some examples of what could appear on the side display include a slide unlock controller, or some app icons from the home screen or dock. In specific apps, like the calculator, additional functions may appear on the sides of the device, like the extended formula set for scientific calculator mode.
