Apple patents a cooling iPhone case. Apple’s patents confirm to us that at least in theory, their devices can be improved in ways that we cannot even imagine. But without a doubt, one of the last documents registered before the United States Patent and Trademark Office is something that most people have been wanting for a long time.
- M1 CPU could help Apple save $2.5 billion this year
- Apple introduces App Store Small Business Program
- Apple tests the prototypes of the foldable iPhone
This new technology seeks to regulate the temperature of the iPhone, a feature that is inevitably altered, taking into account the demands of the iPhone.

The case could be made of silicone, rubber, plastic, metal, or composite structure that surrounds one or more sides of the iPhone and contains a means for detection when the case is attached.
After detecting the case, the iPhone should respond by activating the operating parameters including a thermal threshold associated with a temperature sensor included in the portable electronic device.
The patent illustrates a protective case for an iPhone which includes a thermal insert that is capable of acting as a heat sink and/or a heat spreader as well as a thermally conductive structure in contact with one or more surfaces of the case.
Apple patents a cooling iPhone case. While it is true that patents do not always end up materializing or at least not as quickly as they are registered, it is likely that this is a change that we can see in the medium term and that would certainly be a great success for Apple.
