Apple Is Seriously Considering A Holeless iPhone

A recently surfaced patent shows that Apple is considering a phone design with a glass body and a wraparound display, and no buttons nor ports

If Apple’s removing the headphone jack on iPhone 7 angers you, you might want to stop updating news about the latest iPhone as Apple intends to go even further than that.

A recently surfaced patent shows that the iPhone maker is considering a phone design with a glass body and a wraparound display, with no buttons nor ports.

The patent suggests that Apple is considering a touchscreen that extends to the sides, which can be used to show notifications and time. However, it can also be the replacement for the current volume rockers and power button.

Another possibility is that Apple might adopt the same technology as Google’s Active Edge and HTC’s Edge Sense.

Removing button is one thing but the absence of the charging port is another story. Without it, the new iPhone might have to rely entirely on wireless charging, meaning you have to invest in a compatible charging pad and wireless earbuds or headphones to connect to the phone.

This is not the first time we heard rumors of a holeless iPhone. Last year, Ming-Chi Kuo suggested the same thing in his report. However, since what we have is just a patent, do not expect to see an iPhone without any ports until 2021.

While the idea sounds wild, it is possible to execute. The HTC U12 Plus is an example of a holeless handset and Vivo has made public a concept phone without any port.

Apple will never launch anything it is not sure will work so we might have to wait for a few years before we can see the first holeless iPhone.
