News Tech: Apple secures a patent for a high-end watch and iPhone design. SHAREfacebook-sharetwitter-sharegoogle-sharelinked-share With a new high-end ceramic coating disclosed in patent applications filed in the USA, Apple is seeking to lift the ante on the design of its Apple Watches and iPhones. A recent patent from the US-based tech giant, “Electronic Devices with Textured Zirconia-Based Components,” describes the potential for a new matte appearance using Zirconia-based ceramic material that might be found on upcoming Apple Watch and iPhone models.
According to the patent, the design would give “a matte appearance to an exterior surface of an electronic device. The texture of the enclosure component may also be configured so that it has one or more tactile properties suitable for use as a wearable device and can be readily cleaned.” Alongside improvements in appearance and feel, the new design “may be configured so that the zirconia-based component substantially retains its strength and impact resistance,” as stated in the patent document.
The patent does not guarantee that Apple will feature Zirconia-based components in new models, and it would be wrong to expect it on the upcoming iPhone 14, but it does prove that the company is at least thinking about implementing an additional touch of luxury to their most premium devices.
