  • Apple now has the patent for ‘dual display’
  • It will allow users to have a double screen on single device
  • The technology is certainly very clever

Apple has been granted a patent for “dual display” that can potentially allow a future MacBook or iPad to use the second screen in place of a keyboard, media reports said.

“The US Patent and Trademark Office has granted the tech giant a patent titled ‘dual display equipment with enhanced visibility and suppressed reflections’,” Apple Insider reported late on Tuesday.

The documentation for the patent outlines a device that would use the second display as a dynamic keyboard.

The patent also describes the use of polarizers to help minimise reflections from the two screens onto each other which is a clever addition to solve that problem should the Cupertino-headquartered actually look to build this as a real device, according to The Verge.

Notably, the documentation makes it clear that the implementation is not intended as an accessory that would allow two iPads to be paired together, with one serving as the keyboard.

Apple is reselling iPhone SE devices in the US from clearance stores just four months after declaring discontinuation of its sale, media reports said.

As part of the sale, the company is offering the 32GB and 128GB storage variants of iPhone SE for $249 and $299, respectively. Prior to being pulled off, it was available with for $349 and $449, respectively.

“These are brand new, unopened, and unlocked models with unchanged tech specs, including a 4-inch retina display, A9 chip, touch ID, and 12-MP rear camera,” MacRumors reported on Sunday.

The device has been popular among users of smaller smartphones and those who preferred the iPhone 5-like design.

However, famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo raised doubts on the possibility of a new iPhone SE but in July 2018 a research firm claimed that the company has abandoned its plans for a new iPhone SE, the report said.

Apple had also lowered its revenue guidance with the previous quarter ending with fewer upgrades than anticipated giving rise to speculations hinting that the company is doing everything it can to boost iPhone sales.

“It’s unclear why Apple is selling the iPhone SE again, but it would appear to be clearing out stock,” the report added.
