Apple wants to say goodbye to the covers: it is already working on an indestructible iPhone

The American technology registered a patent that refers to new composite materials of the “space” type.

The industry of cell phone cases It had its peak of ascent a few years ago, when models with different levels of resistance and grip began to be manufactured. But apparently, this category would have its days numbered. At least for the iPhone.

A new patent granted to Apple hints that the iPhone of the future will be so resistant that you will not need a cover protective. In the Space Composites document, approved by the US Patent Office, Cupertino engineers propose a mixture of materials to manufacture the mobile’s chassis.

This new case promises to eliminate the need for protective cases, offering an integrated solution that combines high quality materials to provide protection superior to any seen to date in a mobile phone.

And although many resort to these plastics to protect their devices, they often find themselves with the inconvenience that they add volume and weight to the team. With this new work, users can enjoy maximum protection without compromising aesthetics.

The new patent filed by Apple.

The protection uses a combination of materials such as aluminum and ceramic, along with polymers and amorphous metals, to offer exceptional resistance against drops, bumps and scratches. Therefore, we are talking about something that will be completely different from the competition.

Another standout feature of this case would be its compatibility with wireless charging. Unlike some protective covers -which interfere with this option-, the new finish would be designed not to be a problem.

the exact combination

For some time now, engineers have been looking for new combinations in which, in addition to protecting the device, it does not interfere with its functions.

Experience in this field indicates that metal and mechanized unibody chassis (such as HTC’s) are highly resistant, but at the same time, they deteriorate wireless connectivity capabilities, which is why plastic parts had to be installed next to the antennas.

“Metal casings can be particularly resistant to dents, scratches, or breaks, but can interfere with radio signals entering or emanating from the device. Ceramic casings can be scratch resistant and transparent to radio signals, but they can be brittle,” the patent states.

Apple’s patent mentions some combinations of materials to achieve a desirable balance in terms of protection. The iPhone not only has to be attractive in its design, but resistant to scratches, breaks or abrasion. The compound should also not interfere with signalssince it would violate its functionality.

The patent has already been approved by the USPTO, which published the documents under the name ‘Spatial Composites’, referring to new “spatial” type composite materials, whose characteristics would make it possible to create devices “resistant to abrasion” and therefore resistant to the scratches and the typical marks of habitual use.

It must be remembered that it is not the first time that the indestructible mobile has been sought. One of the first to address the issue was LG with its nanomaterials that should automatically repair micro-scratches. Something that never came to work as thought.
