A new patent filed by Apple suggests that the iPhone will soon be able to detect if its screen is broken before you . The US manufacturer is indeed working on this new technology. The iPhone is generally quite resistant to falls , especially the latest models. However, the smartphone is not unbreakable, it is not uncommon to find its screen damaged or cracked after a serious fall. Apple engineers would be working on a new technology that would be used to detect all kinds of cracks even on the thinnest screen. The technology could even help engineers get data to study the various accidents. They could then know the exact reasons that led to the fracture of the screen to prevent further accidents. According to the sketches of the patent, the technology is based on sensors located under the slab . The sensors can easily detect the impacts caused on the screen. It is still unclear whether the new technology will be integrated into the iPhone 8 expected this year.
