Apple patent shows a future iPhone could have a wrap-around display

Granted by the USPTO on June 14, it says that Apple would “substantially” increase the area a smartphone could display “icons, data, images, [and] video.” The patent also explains how physical volume buttons could be turned into software-based buttons on the edges of the device. Additionally it describes a new way that images and video can be viewed: “A flexible display can be folded in such a way as to form a continuous loop such that images (still or video) can be presented in a wrap-around manner in which the images appear to be presented in a continuous loop,” the patent says.
