Apple Company Has Just Patented In-Cell Touch Technology
United States Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. patent for an Apple in-cell touch display technologies, on the basis of which is supposed to be working sixth-generation iPhone.
The information that follows the new model of Apple iPhone will get a brand new touch screen technology, appeared in April, this year. Then it was reported that the sensory panel of iPhone 5 will be set up on the in-cell touch displays and two Japanese manufacturers, Sharp and a subsidiary of Toshiba, are working on them.
On Tuesday, August 14, Apple was granted a patent titled Touch LCD (Touch screen liquid crystal display), which describes the development of the above. According to this document, the new iPhone 5 LCD screens with multi-touch technology will be integrated directly into the thin-film transistor TFT panels during manufacturing.
The application states that Apple touch screens in-cell noticeably thinner than the traditional on-cell technology, as they touch sensors built into the color filters, and are not a separate layer above them. Among the advantages of this approach to the creation of touchscreens are more rapid response after a screen touch and it is lighter weight.
According to observers, the use of Apple in-cell touch will make a new iPhone display thinner. It is assumed that the integrated solution will reduce the thickness of the next iPhone to 0.44 mm.
Recall that many sources currently agree that the iPhone 5 will be officially presented on September 12, but the sale will go no earlier than September 21. This, of course, talking about the North American market. The debut of the device in the “first wave” is expected in the first week of October, presumably, the fifth day.
Also I must note that except Apple in-cell touch patent, the company has just recently patented wireless charger for iOS devices which is also news because it shows that the Cupertino company develops in the right way and shows its opponents how to satisfies people’s needs.
