Apple patent looks to solve problems inherent to OLED displays

0. phoneArena 01 Aug 2013, 10:59 posted on

Apple has yet to actually release a device that uses an OLED display, although the technology has been rumored to come to Apple's various mobile devices from time to time. But, just because the tech hasn't been in an Apple product doesn't mean that Apple hasn't been working on OLED displays. A new patent shows that Apple has been trying to solve some of the inherent problems with OLED...

How can they solve OLED displays, when they can't fix their own iwatch problem that suppose too have a OLED screen. Apples patent is getting ridiculous.

Better yet: how can they solve OLED problems if they don't make OLED screens?

well they solved the 'bad reception' problem by just increasing the sensitivity of the 'signal bar' display... the average level is *still* 2, it now looks like 4 - so apple customers are happy.. :-~

Don't confuse production with engineering. They don't mass produce OLED screens, but the math, chemical engineering and lab-scale prototyping required to prove out their design and theories is certainly within their ability.

By understanding the technology, what weaknesses are in it, and having a way to remove said weaknesses...that's how.

You are right! Let look at the stake holders.

Goverment; Multi-millons dollars corporation; small time business and start up,

See the big picture! Please use your thinking ability from time to time.

I am only a fool for believing that Apple fans could be reasonable to simple truth that allowing big companies to pay government millons for dubious patent will do more harm than good in the long run.

Anyway enjoy hating the 80% of the world that are now enjoying the most advance mobile experience in android.

I understand that Apple likes too patent THEN SUE others. Then they say we invented OLED SCREENS.

everyone knows it and agree whit it. APPLE doesn't WANT TOO COMPETE cause they are afraid too loose their CONSUMERS and any money. THEY PATENT and SUE companies. so WHY DON'T U STFU.

Whit should be "with". Too should be "to". Too loose should be "to lose". So should be capitalized, since it followed a period. FYI of course...

FYI, never start a sentence with "so" though.

Your comments are so repetitive. "Apple gets _____ patent and will sue others!"

I'm sure there's more words in your vocabulary other than Apple, patent, and sue.

LOL should've been followed by an exclamation point, since it came after a period and you used all capital letters.

Better question is: with Samsung owning some 99% of the world's OLED production, why would Apple go that route? They seem to be doing well enough for themselves with LG displays.

So when Samsung ACTUALLY creates it, because face it, Apple hasn't innovated since 07, Apple will whip out the ban hammer claiming they did first in a drawn out, waste of time, expensive trial.

I thought they were supposed to be in the 5s? At least thats what i heard for the rumors. I wish they would go in more phones...

It's more than likely that this patent would exclusively be used against Samsung in court because Samsung owns majority of OLED R&D and production. That might or might not happen but apple has done this before. They have million patents which will never even go to R&D. Sure other companies do this too but they don't sue others. Pathetic.

This is just them trying to make sure Samsung don't make it for their own devices and only for the screen they're about to get Samsung to manufacture for the iCraps...

Didn't Samsung patented and produced AMOLED and SuperAMOLED displays with this 'idea'? I'm 100% sure I read it here!

Can someone explain to me how this is different than automatic brightness on android? Sure, this may be specific to OLED screens....but it sounds like the same thing to me.

Auto brightness looks outside to see if your in the dark or in the sun and adjusts the brightness accordingly. this would check the display itself for faults ;)

Awww did that comment hurt your feelings? Even though Apple is an insecure little girl who keep making their phones smaller and smaller but offer nothing to the software side.

Actually, the iPhone 5 is longer than the iPhone 4 and 4S so technically it's bigger.
