A second patent has been granted to Apple regarding the additions the company intends to incorporate in its originally planned foldable device.

The second patent is focused on a flexible hinge and the use of a fabric for its housing, Patently Apple, an Apple-centric blog focused on the company’s latest Intellectual Property (IP) developments, reported on Tuesday.


According to the report, the description of the second patent claim reads: “An electronic device, comprising a ‘flexible hinge’ coupled between the first and second housing portions wherein the flexible portion of the housing comprises fabric.”

Earlier in September, South Korea-based electronics major Samsung released a teaser of a phone with bendable and foldable display technology that would offer the functionality of a tablet complete with multi-tasking and a big screen.

In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount.
