Future iPhones Will Feature A Glove Friendly Touchscreen

Apple filed a patent for a Glove-Friendly Touchscreen.

Smartphones never work properly when you have your gloves on. Subsequently, in areas with low temperatures the gloves are necessary to wear whenever going outside.

Using the touch screen during such times is quite a headache. Apple has decided to take this problem into consideration.

The engineers at Apple are working on a new screen which will permit the users to continue using it even while wearing gloves.

The screen will also detect touches, even when you are wearing very high quality “smartphone-safe” kind of gloves.

This news came to us through the patent which was published by U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The patent is titled as “Glove Touch Detection” which obviously refers to the new technology.

If this patent is allowed to ship, then Apple won’t be the first company ever to market a screen that supports the usage of gloves.

We all know that this technology is not going to affect the sales highly but it will be the plus point for the users who are thinking of buying that device.

Apple’s idea will surely gain popularity among masses, because this is the problem we all face during winters.

We all will certainly appreciate the company’s efforts if this screen turns out to be a reality.

Another point is that, we all know there are number of other patent applications by Apple which unfortunately never got to see the light of the day.

Let’s wait and see if the upcoming iPhone 7 gets such screen or not.
