Apple officially launched the Apple Watch in September 2014, but it wasn't until 2015 when it finally hit the market. The design of the Apple Watch remained the same until 2018, with the launch of the Apple Watch Series 4, model with a larger screen, but maintains the same outer structure and is compatible with strings 38 and 42 mm.
Apple continues to work on the new look and design of upcoming Apple Watch models. Based on the latest patent we have registered, Apple wants to add new functions crown the device again may include in the following models the sensing sensor that has responded to the touch.
It is a patent number 20200033815 registered in the United States of America and was named Clock with user input light sensor, Apple says smart watches are very popular and that the features and functionalities they offer It continues to expand to meet the needs and expectations of consumers.
This patent shows Apple's vision to replace the future, crowned Apple Watch with the sensor that responds to touch and does not rotate physically. By turning off the machine and completely flat, this sensor will allow free space inside the device, a space that can be used to add other functions.
