Apple today has been granted a patent for technology that could potentially be used to circumvent the issue of foldable displays creasing and cracking at the fold over time – a problem that has plagued many consumer foldable devices that have made it to market thus far. Published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office under the heading “System with multiple electronic devices,” the patent describes a technology that allows two or more devices to act as one when brought close to each other through the use of proximity sensors. The patent envisions separate devices automatically detecting when they’re placed together contiguously and then sharing a common display image across them. “Multiple electronic devices may be used together in a system,” continues the patent. “The electronic devices may use sensor measurements and other information to detect when an edge of a first electronic device is adjacent to an edge of a second electronic device.” As AppleInsider notes, the wording of the patent leaves open the possibility that the tech could be used to create a single bendable device comprised of two displays in seamless communication with each other, similar to Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Duo. “Magnetic components may hold devices together in a variety of orientations. The magnetic components may operate in cooperation with beveled housing edges and other structures to help hold devices in planar configurations in which the devices lie in a common plane and non-planar configurations in which the devices are oriented at a non-zero angle with respect to each other.” Foldable smartphones are undoubtedly the latest device trend, and while there are no rumors suggesting Apple has plans to release a foldable smartphone anytime soon, the company is clearly exploring their potential. Apple has been known to be working on foldable display technology for years with patents on the implementation of similar technology. Of course, whether this research and development results in a foldable consumer product remains to be seen. Top StoriesCamera Comparison: iPhone 11 Pro Max vs. Samsung Galaxy S20 UltraFriday March 6, 2020 9:54 am PST by Juli CloverEarlier this week we picked up a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and did a feature overview to see if it’s worth $1,400, but we also thought we’d take a deeper look at Samsung’s newest smartphone to see how the cameras measure up to the cameras in Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Max. Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. Hardware Details Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra, like the iPhone, has a multi-lens rear camera setup. There’s a 108-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 12-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera, a 48-megapixel telephoto camera, and a DepthVision Camera for portrait shots. For comparison’s sake, the iPhone is sporting a 12-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera, a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. Portrait Mode When it comes to Portrait mode photos, the Galaxy S20 Ultra wins out thanks to that depth sensor. There’s not a major difference, but the images coming from the S20 Ultra appear to be sharper and the edge
