There’s a lot of potential here. Given their patents, I would be surprised if their wearable didn’t have a curved display. Not too long now until we find out.

Among 48 granted Apple patents published on Tuesday is one that could easily pertain to a wearable device, such as the rumored iWatch. Patently Apple notes that U.S. patent 8,808,483, originally filed in 2010, covers a method to create a curved touch panel. No current Apple products use a curved touch display but the obvious application for one would be on a wearable device, regardless of whether it’s a smartwatch, a health-tracking fitness band or some combination of the two: Curved displays allow for a better, less clunky fit on the wrist compared to traditional, flat screens.
