iOS devices are great for web browsing and gaming but when comes to e-book reading, it may not be an ideal solution partly due to its non-electronics paper display module. If you wonder how Apple will get around with this, the recently patented idea may give you some clues. Just recently, Apple has filed a new patent idea indicating a display with ability to switch between high resolution color and electronics paper targeted for different usage models.

The cupertino-based company further emphasized that these 2 types of displays are actually vertically stackable, with either one of them being totally turned off to make another one visible depending on the needs and applications. Without the hassle to manually switch to individual mode by users, the electronic device will be intelligent enough to analyze the content and then choose the most optimum display solution for respective tasks, making it ideal regardless of what users are planning to do with their iOS devices. For instances, most users would prefer a full saturated high resolution color when they are doing web browsing or gaming but when comes to ebook reading, a black/white monochrome display could be preferred.

However, there isn’t any confirmation on which next generation iOS devices will have this feature so lets wait if this will be materialized or could purely just be another brilliant idea that sits in patent office.
