Apple Got Patent Approval For Folio Keyboard With Smart Gesture. by towoju5(m): 9:11pm On Dec 24, 2019
Apple has been granted 53 new patents by the U.S Patent and Trademark Office. One of the most interesting patents pertains to a fabric-based keyboard that supports gestures. The new keyboard is likely to succeed in the current crop of Smart Keyboard Folio and the gesture feature will be an addition.

Earlier, Apple had also been granted a patent for touch gestures for Magic keyboards. It is very much possible that the company is planning to extend the touch gestures to Smart Keyboard Folio as well. If it happens, then iPad Pro will support touch gestures on the keyboard.

According to Apple, the technology will come handy when a user desires to reposition an on-screen cursor in order to multi-touch gestures. The technology will work by registering touch inputs by using sensors. The said sensors are capable of measuring capacitance charge at the intersections of a horizontal and vertical captive touc h sensor. Furthermore, the touch input obtained from a captive touch sensor will be used to control circuitry in the device or in the keyboard.

I think they are late with this gesture keyboard. People are too lazy to use gestures for managing house gadgets, me too. I prefer to control my robot vacuum via smartphone, same with other smart home features that I managed to install after reading guides on https://cityofmayfield.org/. There are also useful articles too especially the ones about drone repair.
