Another patent- “Electronic device with a wrap around display” was also awarded to Apple on the same day.

The material used for the models will resemble that of glass and can also be a blend of plastic and glass. There will be five icons across the screen per row rather than just four icons as present in iPhone6 models. The volume control will now be a feature on the screen that increases by expanding itself whenever the user holds the finger on it. To unlock and lock the device, the multitouch gesture present along the sides is utilized.
