Apr 12, 2022
Yesterday, we reported how Apple was successful in its patent application for an under-display Face ID technology. Well, it looks like the tech giant has been busy behind the scenes and has also been granted patents for other designs, including for a few game controllers!
Speaking of the game controller patents, it seems that Apple may still be figuring out the best design option. The company has had three different design concepts for the gaming controller in two separate patent applications that were approved by the US Patent and Trademark Office as well as from the European Patent Office.

We may finally see a notch-less iPhone that still retains Face ID in the near future as Apple was recently successful in its patent application for an under-display TrueDepth camera. Granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on 5 April 2022, the patent is of an ‘Electronic device including a camera disposed behind a display’.
A further dive into the official patent application document shows that Apple has actually been planning this feature for a long time. In fact, the patent application for the under-display TrueDepth camera was actually made on 24 September 2019.
