Many of us have been there. A blow on the slopes and the phone screen bursts into a thousand pieces. It is equally annoying every time, no matter how great the damage is, and in the future may Iphone warn us of danger. It reports AppleInsider.
Apple is apparently working on a technology that helps users determine whether a unit has received a crack. It may involve minimal fractures that are difficult to see with the naked eye, but which can be crucial when the phone receives a new blow.
In the patent application, Apple dubbed "Cover Glass fracture detection", says it is a system that uses a network of tiny sensors and software to check for any cracks. Furthermore, the technology seems to be part of a new screen protector.
If a crack is detected, the system can inform the user and point out where the damage is, something that would be extremely useful, for example, hair huge cracks. When, or if, Apple introduces the system is unclear. However, what is certain is that cracks in screens are a common problem for smartphone owners.
