Apple Wins Photonic Crystal Coatings Patent that produces Bright Color Smart Spots on the back of iPhones acting as Alerts

Yesterday the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially published a series of 45 newly granted patents for Apple. Due to the Apple event at The Brooklyn Academy of Music yesterday where Apple launched their new MacBook Air, Mac mini and iPad Pro, I decided to postpone some granted patent reports. One of Apple’s latest granted patents covers the possibility of Apple using Photonic Crystal coatings on future devices. The coatings could have active areas that brighten a spot of color on an iPhone to alert users of a message or other things and when the alert has been dealt with, the brighter spot on your iPhone’s back side will return to the color of the Phone and blend back in.
