  • 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 expected to launch its 16-inch MacBook Pro along with iPad Pro tablets with OLED screens from Samsung.

Apple uses these high-end screens as a selling point for its iPhone XS and XS Max, but iPhone sales have been slowing and the company may need other places to put those screens, The Verge reported late on Friday.

In an earlier report, famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo talked about the launch of new Apple devices.

Kuo stated that the company might launch a new iPad with 10 or 12-inch screen in late 2020 or early 2021 and a MacBook with 15 to 17-inch screen size in the first half of 2021 equipped with mini-LED panels.
