The patents not just reveal the inclusion of the tech but also some of the ways how it may work. The patent reveals that users could use the gesture to turn pages, scroll and even play games. It is not for sure how this will exactly work.
What’s more is that the device might be able to detect tilt and will adjust the page scrolling speed. “The electronic device defined in claim 2 wherein the control circuitry changes the content by flipping pages of text displayed on the flexible display layer based on the tilt angle,” adds the patent, as reported by 9to5Mac.
While this was for the iPhone or iPad devices, there are 37 other patents proving that the launch of AirPower is inching closer. They talk about the ‘smart fabric’ that the company will be integrating with remote controls in AirPower.
“The fabric-based item may include control circuitry that gathers user input from the input circuitry and wireless communications circuitry that the control circuitry uses to transmit remote control commands and other wireless signals in response information from the input circuitry.”
Maybe this speeds up the process required to make AirPower wireless charging mat and bring it to shelves.
Apple last month a patent suggested that Apple could be upgrading its Animoji feature. The patent titled Voice Effects Based on Facial Expressions clearly mentions how each Animoji in future will come with a dedicated sound.
