The Next iPhone, or the Next of the Next – Apple Patents Show Interesating Possibilities that would Seriously Shake-up the Market ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🍎🍎🍎

The Next iPhone, or the Next after the Next – Apple Patents Show Interesating Possibilities that would seriously Shake-up the Market

The Fun part of this story is the possibility of Apple delivering a “convexed” surface on the front and back of an iPhone. To accommodate this notion Apple is filing patents in attempt to “lock up” the competition. Keep in mind that that there is a very “long path” from patents to a product delivered.

To date manufacturers have been delivering LiON Polymer power cells that look like a Domino game piece, big ones, little ones, thick, thin, slender. In the iPhone, the battery is about 3″ long, 1″ wide, and 3mm thick. If the New iPhone has a convex-curved exterior, this brings on the notion of having a convex-shaped LiON Polymer battery internally.

As a former student of Chemistry decades ago, its not a new notion that lithium polymer batteries may take on shapes other than typical Cylinders, like AA batteries, C-Cells, D-Cells, etc. In fact LiON power “cells” may be “shaped to fit” the precise undulating-initeriors of iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, where the LiON Polymer Components (1) do not have to be flat surfaced wafers, (2) not necessarily rectangular, (3) not necessarily round, (4) the lithium polymer power “packs” may take on odd-shapes compatible with product interiors of the available space inside an iPhone, for example, where space and weight are at a very high premium.

Two newly published Apple patent applications reveal that [Apple] is exploring the use of curved and non-rectangular batteries hinting that we may see a new shaped iDevice joining the iOS lineup in the future. The line-drawing is an actual abstract from a recent Apple Patent. The color graphic is an artists-renditiuon of what a convexed 5″ display for the new iPhone may look like.

The patent applications, which have been filed with and published by the US Patent and Trademark Office, are titled “Curved battery cells for portable electronic devices” and “Non-rectangular batteries for portable electronic devices,” which both cover methods to manufacture batteries that allow a more efficient use of space within a device’s casing.

“Efficient use of space may be limited by the use and arrangement of cells in existing battery pack architectures,” Apple explains in its patent description. “In particular, battery packs typically contain rectangular cells of the same capacity, size and dimensions.”

“This common type of battery pack design may be unable to utilize the free space in the portable electronic device that is outside of a rectangular space reserved for the battery pack,” the description continues. “For example, a rectangular battery pack of this type may be unable to efficiently utilise free space that is curved, rounded and/or irregularly shaped.”

Several Key advantages of Lithium Polymer Power “cells”, that make it the fulfillment of every device maker’s dream, including Apple.

1. Lithium Polymer Power “cells” can be customized to perfectly fit any device Unlike regular batteries, lithium polymer cells don’t have to be made in heavy,
pressure-tight metal cases. And because the cells hold the electrolyte
in solid or gel polymer form, they can be made into odd shapes as thin as
paper to fit any space available in any device, big or small.

2. Lithium Polymer Power “cells” are safer and more stable than other types of batteries; Thanks to the non-flammable polymer in the battery, lithium polymer bears little risk of explosion even when it is punctured or dropped or run over by a vehicle. Although like all batteries, great care must be taken to prevent overcharging.

3. Lithium Polymer Power “cells” have a long battery life. Because lithium polymer batteries are highly resistant to changes in temperature, it dramatically increases the life cycle and capability to hold a charge longer than other batteries.

4. Lithium Polymer Power “cells” are easy to maintain. Lithium polymer batteries can be stored for one or two months without significantly losing charge. This saves businesses the trouble of assigning manpower to charge the batteries without having the need to.

5. Lithium Polymer Power “cells” are more environmentally friendly. Since lithium polymer batteries are longer lasting, there is no need to discard them earlier than you should.

6. Lithium Polymer Power “cells” do not contain any mercury, lead acid or any solvent that harms the environment. Therefore there is virtually no risk of toxic spills or release of poisonous fumes into the atmosphere.
