The Apple filed new patent application with the U.S.
Patent and Trademark Office, 
USPTO was discovered by AppleInsider. The company
filed a patent last year, but it has not been assigned yet. The application
describes a technology "Electronic Device with Hidden Connector" uses
self-healing elastomers to weatherproof iPhone connectors to protect terminals
on the iPhone from water or dust. 

Through the gates covering it with a
self-healing elastomer could connect their headphones for example, users by
puncturing the material. When removing the headphones it should restore the
material itself again and hide connector ports.

Electronic Device With Hidden Connector

For the construction of the self-healing
would like to make Apple's use of material based on conventional
polymers. They would after penetration, for example through a headphone jack or
a data cable, at least 90 percent of the initial strength should recover.
However, how this translates into sustainability in the longer term is not
clear. Apple calls in the patent application, however, a number of different
ways of processing the self-healing elastomer in iPhones, which indicates that
the company is still considering how to exactly implement the technology.

By making use of the materials described in
the patent application, it should be possible to make a water resistant iPhone.
Or Apple working on it also is not clear; Not all technologies where
patent-pending final processed products. However, there were earlier rumors
suggesting that Apple has a waterproof iPhone in the pipeline.
Several companies have made water-resistant smartphones, but in many cases, the material must be the connection ports
against water or dirt to be removed manually. As the technology used
in Apple's new patent application, that would be no longer necessary.
