Apple is registering a new patent and intends to combine the patented technology to add integrated technology for iMac to project display content onto surfaces such as walls, thereby solving the problem of users feeling that the screen is not large enough during use.
iMac is a series of all-in-ones produced by Apple, which is mainly targeted at the enterprise and education markets.
Due to the unique design and outstanding ease of use of the iMac, it has been highly sought after, and there are still fruit fans looking forward to the new iMac.
Apple has applied for the patent No. 20200081492 in the US Patent Office: "The shell structure and input-output device of electronic equipment". Apple hopes to integrate a projection display on the iMac body so that the iMac can use the wall behind it to expand the display range.
When using this patented technology, Apple needs to change the iMac back shell material to glass or other transparent materials, so that a projector attached to the back or below the iMac can project images to nearby surfaces through glass or other transparent objects on.
These projection devices can use the environment around the iMac (such as walls, desktops, etc.) to display content to help expand the area of the display range provided to users.
The purpose of Apple doing this is to make the iMac "invisible", that is, the part of the projection screen blocked by the iMac can be displayed on the device screen.
Other parts of the device can be the best extension of the iMac screen. This new iMac with glass back cover material is likely to be expensive.
In addition, there are news that Apple may launch a new flexible screen iMac Pro, in order to realize the concept of integrated keyboard and screen.
Apple's registered patent for this is "electronic device with glass housing parts". Looking at the patent design, Apple will use a whole flexible screen to build this device, so that this device can be expanded into a large screen with external keyboard and mouse. It can also be folded up in an emergency and turned into a laptop-like structure.
Apple originally planned to hold a New Year's product launch at the end of March, but due to the spread of the new crown epidemic abroad, the launch is likely to be cancelled.
Moreover, due to the impact of the new crown epidemic in China, a large number of foundries have only resumed work recently. Even if there are new products, the current output is difficult to meet the demand of apples. Fruit powder still needs to wait slowly.
