Phone Arena reported on the 15th (local time) that a patent related to a scratch-resistant rear panel registered by Apple with the United States Patent and Trademark Office ( USPTO ) was recently disclosed.
The published patent document describes a highly durable housing designed to resist scratches.
It is a type that protects the device from shocks and scratches by placing microbeads (small beads) made of various materials such as metal, ceramic, and glass메이저놀이터.
If made entirely of metal, it’s scratch-resistant, but it can interfere with the radio signal going into or out of the device. Ceramic transmits wireless signals well and is resistant to scratches, but it has the disadvantage of being brittle, so it is explained that various materials are combined.
The patent notes that the new housing was designed for the iPhone, but could also be applied to various Apple devices in the future, including the Apple Watch, iPad, and MacBook.
In addition, the microbeads may have a bead shape or a triangular pyramid shape. Looking at the patent picture alone, it seems that the user can feel the small bumpy bumps when touching the back panel, but the texture is not described.
The British Daily Mail said, “Industry sources believe that it is too late for this patent to be included in the iPhone 15 announced this year,” and “but some have expectations that it will be applied to the iPhone Pro line in the future.”
