| by tech2 News Staff |
Apple is possibly considering new designs and shapes for its future smartphones. According to Apple Insider, the latest patent application filings by the Cupertino company shows a curved battery design and irregular shape for future iPhones or iPod devices.
Apple has filed two patents with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that show a new battery that’s curved and features an irregular shape. Both patent filings – "Curved battery cells for portable electronic devices" and "Non-rectangular batteries for portable electronic devices", describe different processes for creating the battery. The designs ensure that the battery is manufactured and designed to snugly fit into a shapely and curvy slim body of the device.

Here’s the description from the filing - “In some embodiments, the curve is formed to facilitate efficient use of space inside a portable electronic device. For example, the curve may be formed at one or more ends of the battery cell to allow the battery cell to occupy a curved and/or rounded space within the enclosure of a laptop computer, tablet computer, mobile phone, personal digital assistant (PDA), digital camera, portable media player, and/or other type of battery-powered electronic device.”
