Ladies, our prayers have been answered! Apple is finally working on a plan to make their iPhones and Macbooks I.N.D.E.S.T.R.U.C.T.I.B.L.E.
As someone who has a mini-heart attack every single time my beloved iPhone falls, this is something I greatly appreciate. I mean, depending on the model of your phone, that’s roughly Dhs3,500 that’s just fallen from the sky (table) to be kissed by gravity (the floor), only to be left with a nice little (massive) split on our screen. Which usually leads to me squinting a little and begging my friends not to send me memes because I like memes and it makes me really mad when I CAN’T SEE THEM.
Sorry, I’m going off topic. Back to these plans that Apple has to change our lives for the better.
According to a newly released patent, Apple is putting tons of money and hours into creating technology that will make all of their devices scratchproof and unbendable.
The Abrasion-Resistant Surface Finishes On Metal Enclosures (super sexy name for a patent right there) explains that there will be two layers of screens in the near future – a lower metallic layer and a harder outer layer that will be coated in either a ceramic material or a carbon-based substance that will have a similar hardness to diamonds – nice.
As for the unbendable bit, this will hopefully be achieved by applying an abrasive-resistant coating over the device’s paint layer. Which, could also mean that we might see more colour options in the future – a change that we are very much looking forward to.
Excuse me while I go and pester the good folks at Apple to speed up the process.
I’ll keep you posted on how I get on.
