Apple smartphones have long been considered one of the best on the market. They are characterized by high build quality, excellent cameras, and innovative technologies.

Recently, information has appeared on the web that Apple plans to introduce another unique feature in its gadgets, namely a self-healing screen. Apple Іnsider told about this in more detail.

Self-repairing displays are screens that have the ability to repair dents, and scratches, and return to their original shape on their own.

Apple has been working on a smartphone that can fold like a book but faced the problem that the screens could not bend without damage. However, a recently issued patent suggests a way to minimize and neutralize damage by combining rigid and flexible areas of the screens, as well as using self-healing technology.

It's worth noting that the document contains a lot of information about self-healing screens, but very little about how the company is trying to implement its idea.

Apple suggests that this flexible part or the entire screen could contain a layer of elastic polymer. This is a material that stretches but then returns to its original shape.

An alternative to self-healing can be "initiated or accelerated recovery by external heat, light, electric current, or other type of external stimulus," the patent says.

Apple also proposes to add transparent conductors to the display coating, which form a heating layer to generate heat, for example, when the device is charging.

If this technology is successfully implemented, it can be used in anything, even for the manufacture of wristwatches.
