Apple has filed one of the most interesting patent applications which has got everyone talking about them. While we know that Apple’s iPhone 11 series has gotten off to a blockbuster start, we are not even talking about those smartphones. What we are going to tell you is about the future of iPhones and what the company is thinking about it. Basically, the company has filed a patent application which shows that Apple is looking to use the iconic logo found on iPhone’s back panel as a notification light as per The Verge‘s report.
If you have not used a smartphone from 2018 or 2019, you must be having a notification light on your phone to tell you if a message, call or something important was missed. However, this does not happen on modern smartphones and you only get the option of an Always-on display. However, Apple is thinking of innovating things as it will now light up the logo on back of its iPhones so that you can be reminded if something important such as message, notification or call comes. Also, it is worth mentioning that you will be able to see the glowing logo only when the phone is placed face-down. On the hindsight, however, you cannot see the notification light on current smartphones when they are kept facing up.
So this is something you will need to get used to. However, this idea is not new from Apple as they were already putting glowing logos on their MacBooks and other Apple products barring the iPhones and iPads. This could mean that Apple will bring the glowing logo that we have loved over the years on a device like the iPhone. We also believe that Apple will use an RGB LED so that you can customize the colours of glowing logo as per notifications. However, it is also worth noting that this is just a patent and might not be implemented at all.
