Apple Might be Working on a ‘Self-Healing’ Folding Smartphone, Patent Reveals

Folding phones seem to be the next thing in smartphone tech. With manufacturers like Samsung, Motorola, and Huawei already having folding smartphones in the market, it seems like Apple is also looking to get a piece of that pie. Now, since we’re talking Apple, the Cupertino-based giant is said to be looking at folding smartphones a little differently. An Apple patent published on the US Patent and Trademark Office reveals an idea of a ‘self-healing’ smartphone. The patent, filed by Apple in January this year, talks about “Electronic Devices With Flexible Display Cover Layers” with “self-healing” properties. The patent was filed on January 28. It named the inventors of the technology, along with the applicant name (Apple Inc), and the application number.

In the filing, Apple says that the self-healing material, which could be placed

Aurora Labs ramps ‘self-healing’ software with $23M from LG Technology Ventures, Porsche SE, Toyota Tsusho

The automotive market is grappling with increasingly complex software systems, and in turn greater risks of glitches that can cause costly and unsafe disruptions and damage an automaker’s credibility.

Just look at today’s new cars, trucks and SUVs compared to their counterparts a decade ago. New vehicles coming off assembly lines today contain tens of millions of lines of code, a statistic that continues to rise as automakers invest more in software.

This upward trend has created risks for automakers; it’s also opened up opportunity for burgeoning startups like Aurora Labs, which developed a platform that can spot problems with software in cars and fix it on the fly. The company is now preparing to ramp up operations, even beyond automotive, as software takes a central role in shared mobility, cities and homes.

Aurora Labs developed a platform designed to detect and predict problems and then fix any issues in
