Apple has developed how cellular antennas will be hidden on the display and has already utilized for a patent
A long time ago, cell phone screens no longer served their main function of showing us pictures and being able to interact with them. Fingerprint readers have long been inserted into them and which make it possible, for example, to remove them from the sides, back or even in front, as soon as it was necessary to stretch their diagonals in order to better use the space.
Now Apple seems to be taking another step to fill the screen with components that can be removed from other parts of the phone. One of his latest patents speaks of it Put the receiving phone antennas in additional layers that have been added to the screen. For example, the antennas could be removed from the body of the cell phone.
Antennas made of transparent conductive materials
As mentioned earlier, Apple has pending a patent on how the receiving antennas of cell phones and other electronic devices are placed on the screen itself. We’re not just talking about the antenna for mobile data, but also the antennas responsible for Bluetooth or WiFi. Everything embedded in an additional layer for display.
Apple has been working for a long time on how to get your TouchID onto the panel from their cell phones and restore them to a point in time when FaceID is the only biometric unlocking solution for their terminals. The system for embedding the antennas would be similar to that of the TouchID readers, and would also use translucent layers that let light through so the screen wouldn’t lose its effectiveness.
With the arrival of metal and glass cell phones, manufacturers have tried to hide antennas that, unlike the hidden antennas found on plastic cell phones, had to be placed outdoors. With this solution, Apple would solve its problems not only on the iPhone or iPad, but also in one fell swoop also on the Apple Watch or your future augmented reality glasses.
In order to integrate TouchID and maintain its demanding level of efficiency, Apple even speaks of features that are as specific as the illumination of the footprint at an angle of 42 degrees so as not to distort the detection by the light sensors. The Californians would use it to integrate the antennas transparent conductive materials to make the system invisible.
