Apple receives curved glass production patent

Speculation has hinted at a curved-screen iPhone, but the process could be used for glass covers in a number of devices — phones, media players, tablets, monitors and televisions, among other devices, are all listed as possible beneficiaries in the patent summary. [via Patently Apple]
