New Apple Patent Reveals The iPhone 5s?

A new patent application from Apple reveals the new “iPhone 5s” which will have a wraparound display and multifunctional capabilities. Earlier this year, we shared with you the first concept design of the new iPhone 5s/6 which matches the new patents illustrations.

Although the newly patented design looks similar to the iPod nano, the filing says the content could be displayed on one or both screen. For example, two people could watch a videos or view photos on both sides in a continuous loop.

According to Patently Apple, which first uncovered the patent filing, the new design doesn’t include physical buttons. Instead, the buttons will be virtual, meaning you could simply wave your hand over the display to adjust the audio.

Don’t get to excited though! The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office publishes many Apple patents each week, so this recent filing doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll soon see this design on store shelves.

On a side note, what do you think about the Apple iWatch?
