The digital crown of the Apple Watch is undoubtedly one of the most important components that we have in the watch and that is that we basically only have two buttons on the device. Now a new patent approved and confirmed by Apple shows us what would be a kind of steering controller in the purest joystick style like the one that some console controls have, to get an idea we can think of the Dualshock. Logically in a much smaller size and adapted to Apple's wearable device.
Having a cursor on the Apple Watch may be something that we will see in the future and it is that although it is true we are clear that patents don't always end up being implemented On devices, this type of clock control could be implemented on an Apple smartwatch at one point. Select elements, move between the menus or even use this crown more without touching the screen, are some of the options that we could have to get to implement this patent.
The image of the approved patent is quite illustrative and with it the digital crown that we have right now as we know it would be lost. What happens is that this type of crown could be a problem when performing involuntary touches on her, since the possibility of playing with a long-sleeved garment would be accentuated. We will see what finally happens with this patent and if we see it implemented in the Apple watch in the future or it remains in another patent for the collection.
