Apple might be working on an awesome 'keyless' keyboard

Written by  Mar 18, 2018

You've probably forgotten amidst all this hype about iPhones, but Apple still occasionally makes computers and tablets. And a new patent application reveals that its next ones might have an interesting feature. 

The patent, first reported by Patently Apple, would be for technology that can make an onscreen keyboard (like that on an iPad) feel like a real keyboard.

According to the patent application's images, Apple has in mind a touchscreen device that could display a keyboard, or other buttons such as music and volume controls. The device will sense when you pressed each key and provide haptic feedback — that is, you'll feel like you're pressing a physical key. 

Users would easily be able to press this patented keyboard.

It seems versatile — the patent application's images show such a keyboard paired with a laptop, a desktop, and an iPad.
