Apple patents a touchscreen that emulates different materials thanks to vibrations, temperature
As usual with patents, it's not known whether this tech will make it to a consumer device, i.e. a future iPhone or an iPad. The honchos at Cupertino might have something in mind and surprise us in September, but we shouldn't rule out the more plausible possibility that Apple is just patenting this technology so that it has the upper hand if someone else comes up with a similar idea.
