As can be seen from the images in the patent, this time Apple is not limited to a square OLED display. The sides of the watch are close to the screen. A number of different usage scenarios can be raised

First of all, it is possible to switch to a much more visible display area than a square screen area restricted to smart watches. However, it is not known whether this flexible display cord can be changed at this time

If a switchable system is created, it can be a module that will add additional functions to the smart clock. There are many different usage scenarios with watchOS.

Although Apple has often come up with MicroLED technology, it is unlikely that a model with this technology will emerge in 2019. This screen technology, which is both thinner and less energy efficient, can play a key role in Apple's flexible display devices. Of course, it is not clear whether such a product will reach the end consumer.

In the meantime, OLED display technology will continue to be used in both Apple Watch and iPhone models.
