The patent covers a display that makes use of quantum dots, which according to Apple Insider, has been described as nanocrystals, which are “in some cases smaller than a virus – made from various semiconductor materials that exhibit special quantum mechanical characteristics.” Apple Insider goes on to note that quantum dots are “Of interest to display makers, as well as other industries in the optics field, are QDs’ light-emitting properties. Specifically, the material can be “tuned,” or manufactured, to emit very narrow spectrums of light.”
We’re not sure what the end result of such a display could look like, but we reckon it’s about time that Apple did something about its iPhone displays. What do you guys think? Will we be seeing a big change in display come the iPhone 6?
