The Apple Watch’s crappy flashlight could be in for a huge upgrade

You might not be aware of it, but the Apple Watch that’s on your wrist right now actually has a built-in flashlight. It’s great for finding things in a dark room, but it isn’t going to win any awards when it comes to luminance. It’s pretty bright for what it is, but things could be much, much better.

It appears that someone at Apple agrees because a new patent suggests that Apple is keen to find a way to make the Apple Watch’s flashlight brighter than it already is. How much brighter remains to be seen, but the extra brightness isn’t going to be the only benefit to such a change, assuming that it ever actually happens — we’ll get to that later. There’s a whole other benefit to this patent’s design, and it’s all about angles.
