Apple Granted Patent For Laser Polishing Allowing Future Ceramic iPhones
There is a possibility that Apple may unveil ceramic iPhones in the future as indicated by a new patent that was recently granted.
Apple has received a patent for laser polishing. This technology will allow the tech giant to look at the possibility of using Zirconia ceramic which is more durable than the two materials previously used in iPhones - aluminum and glass. Laser polishing will actually make it possible to use various materials for Apple's products by using high temperature and laser technology. Other materials that Apple can look at thanks to the new laser polishing technique include corundum, sapphire, liquid metal and a host of other impressive materials. The rumor mill, however, is focused on glass and Zirconia ceramic.
If Apple succeeds in utilizing Zircona ceramic on its products, it will also succeed in solving one of the iPhone 7's most annoying issue dubbed by some as the "scuffgate". Apple's popular device from last year, the Jet Black iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, has been criticized for its tendency to easily get scratches. The black iPhone 5 also exhibited scratches faster than those of other colors. With a Zirconia ceramic body, the popular Jet Black iPhone will have to deal with scratch issues no more.
Express noted that Apple is already utilizing Zirconia ceramic in a particular Apple Watch model. The laser polishing tech will allow the tech company to finally apply the material on its premium smartphone.
Another rumor floating around is the possibility of employing an all-glass design. A patent was recently granted the company showing Apple's plans for an "Electronic Device with Wraparound Display" which is similar to previous Apple patents. The new rumor, however, says that the wraparound display will be made entirely of glass.
Despite the impressive potential brought about by the laser polishing tech, it may be too late for Apple to use it on its 10th anniversary iPhone.
