Quick, what’s the most annoying thing about smartphones? Sure, there are many answers to that broad question, but my vote goes to that moment when you’re using your phone in bed, lying on your side, and the screen orientation flips even though you don’t want it to.

Thankfully, a new Apple patent unearthed by AppleInsider and subsequently reported by MacRumors suggests Cupertino may have a solution in store for iPhone users. But this patent is so obviously clever and attainable with existing hardware that you’d have to imagine Apple could implement it in iOS tomorrow if it wanted to, well before the iPhone 12 launches.
