Hmm, it makes you wonder what new product Apple has in mind that would require such a new battery design, doesn’t it? Maybe that’s the point of interest here.

I don't know how long they've been around, but another company has been working on something similar.

While Apple's patent appears to present a wider variety of shapes, it's still interesting to see that this is the next wave in battery construction. The link for freeformbattery was provided to Patently Apple by Pete Austin

Just a crazy thought that wouldn't happen for quite a few years. I noticed that they specifically chose to put the battery behind the bezel rather than the screen. I know that other electronics are filling up the rest of the space like the ram, processor and so on but this could allow for a see through screen similar to what we see in some movies in the future.
