Apple Files New Patent And You Won’t Believe What It Is For
Apple is massively known as one of the top purveyors of new innovations and advancements in technology. With the new patent filed by Apple recently, no one would not think what the Cupertino-giant is preparing in the pipeline.
Apple has filed lately a patent application with code US 20160264304 A1 for a paper bag. According to a report by The Telegraph, the patent is described as "a bag container formed of white solid bleached sulfate paper with at least 60% post-consumer content."
The report stressed that this quirky innovation by Apple has already been in use around its stores across the globe and not too many noticed it until the patent came out. Apart from the patent being filed by Apple, the new paper bag innovation caught the attention of the tech community because of its support to environmental preservation.
Accordingly, this paper bag is made of 60% recycled materials. As Apple's application stated, "The bag may be formed entirely of paper with the potential exception of adhesives for fixing together portions of the bag. This can help to reduce any environmental impact from production, use, and disposal of the bag."
It furthered that the bag container material can be suitably used for many times even after slight tearing. However, like the wireless earbuds Apple produced for the iPhone 7, the paper bag technology has drawn flak and sarcasm from netizens.
"The bag will cost 10 times more than it should and will not include the headphone jack"— P.M. Seymour (@PatMSeymourVA) September 22, 2016
Surely to be a true Apple bag they need to remove some functionality. Maybe get rid of the handles. And seal it shut https://t.co/RmyOR5qM6k— Richard Gray (@chalkmark) September 20, 2016
Meanwhile, the company has slowly been introducing efforts to improve current state of the environment. Earlier this year, Apple made public a robot called Liam to partake in recycling old iPhone units. In 2015, the company said almost 100% of its energy usage came from renewable sources.
