The patent describes ”Edge displays may alternatively function as virtual buttons, virtual switches or information displays that are supplemental to front side displays… Edge shows might alternatively perform as digital buttons, digital switches or info shows which might be supplemental to entrance aspect shows.”

This makes us think that Apple are putting together future iPhones (the iPhone 8 maybe) that will offer a curved screen similar to those seen in the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Note 7.
