Patent: virtual buttons on the sides of iDevices

enero 29, 2020

If we crot a series of patents rvls this week by the US Patent and Trademark Office, Apple is said to have added visual indicators and touch buttons on the edges of the iPhone and iPad.

The use of visual indicators and touch buttons is described as "a secondary screen" in one of two patents disclosed by the United States patent agency. Apple would have thought of incorporating such a feature to help, for example, users navigate their device even more easily.

This type of button could be quite simply tactile but also electroluminescent (clear). They could be used to control a native application but could light up in relation to the orientation of the device (in portrait or landscape mode).

These types of new features could also unleash a very interesting potential in video games.

We discuss it on the forum.
