Apple patents foldable iPhone featuring a ‘self-healing screen’

If a new patent Apple recently rewarded is any indication, the foldable market could heat up in a big way.

The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded Apple a patent for a device that comes with a foldable display and a “self-healing display” that would use heat from a range of sources, including light, current and external heat that would allow for the display’s surface to return to form. The patent, which was earlier reported on by Patently Apple, would also come with a layer at the top of its screen that would heal on its own.
