Apple files dozens of patents every year, but the pair of recently accepted patents can be significant for research and development of future products. The two patents both deal with ideas and inventions in the area of displays and implementation of holographs in micro-LED environment. With acquisitions of companies working on advanced technologies in the area of optics and imagery, the total number of patents related to these technologies has surpassed 200 approvals. It is expected that some of them will be implemented in the future generations of iPhones and other smart display products.
- Recently, Apple was awarded two patents related to Holographic Imagery derived from micro-LED Displays for HMD and iPhone.
- According to Apple, it is feasible to imagine the HMD system being used to project objects virtually into a physical environment.
- This new holographic technology could also be utilized in future Apple Watches, iPhones, and other devices.
“Apple was granted a patent for this invention that relates to micro-LED displays that could provide an angle-of-view adjustment layer that may be formed from holographic structures.”
