According to a new patent, future iPhones might finally get LED notification light of some sort, which would double as an Apple logo too.
The patent tells a story about a transparent layer on the back of a smartphone with adjustable decoration overlapping by the transparent layer changing the appearance of the light that comes out of the logo. There’s also a control circuitry that can adjust the appearance in response to an event like a call or missed notification.
It’s interesting to see this feature being revived after it was removed from MacBooks. As some of you remember, the Apple logo was once illuminated on MacBooks. Of course, keep in mind that this is just a patent and there’s no guarantee that it would make it to the iPhones.
