Apple patents all-glass iPhone with wraparound display #29530

Apple may finally let iPhone users select their default apps Apple patents all-glass iPhone with wraparound display #29530

Apple may soon allow iPhone users to set third-party apps as the default apps on the company's iOS software, reports Bloomberg. The music streaming service which launched multiple attacks against Apple could potentially be allowed to stream directly to Apple's HomePod speaker. According to a report from Bloomberg's Apple-whisperer, Mark Gurman, that's about to change.

According to the new development, Apple is looking into giving you a choice to select a third-party web browser and mail app for starters. The company has never allowed users to replace any system app with a third-party app by setting it as a system-wide default. "Moreover, the side- and back-viewable displays may be made touch and/or force sensitive using touch- and/or force-sensing systems, effectively turning the side and back surfaces into additional input devices or surfaces with which a user may interact to control the electronic device". Although it has not been confirmed but it is being said that the third party is ready to launch the app by default. Although you can still download and install 3rd party applications, the experience isn't as integrated and seamless compared to native apps. Spotify had, last year, submitted an antitrust complaint to the European Union stating that Apple imposed 30 percent cut for subscriptions via the App Store. This new OS update could be the one for those users who wanted to witness that significant change. Sometimes it's worth letting go of a little bit of control to give your customers something they've been waiting for. Apple is doing what you would, too, and it's probably doing what it must.

A knock-on effect of this change would be that you'd be able to drop the annoying "on Spotify" from your voice requests to Siri when asking for music, since the service would be the new default.

The new application is far from being the first time Apple has filed a patent for radically redesigned iPhone. That Apple doesn't allow default apps to be changed would pose a problem here too.
