Apple is always thinking about how to improve the devices it already has on the market. For this, the research and development team invents new ways to improve them. All these ideas are reflected in patents, which is the legal way for no one to take away those ideas if they materialize. In that case we talk about the idea of using curved glass for the iMac and stands for the MacBook screens. Let’s see what they are about.
At the beginning of last year, Apple applied for a patent for a curved glass iMac design and that the same design could be used for a screen and a stand for a MacBook. The requested patent has been granted these days. The United States Patent and Trademark Office published a patent created by Apple that relates to a next-generation all-in-one (AIO) desktop iMac that is made with a continuous glass body. The design is shown to have a series of twists with alternative ideas, iIncluding a similarly shaped desk accessory designed for a MacBook.
It is exactly described as:
An electronic device that may include an element of the glass casingor that includes a top part that defines a display area, a bottom part that defines an input area, and a transition part that joins the top and the bottom and defines a continuous, curved surface between the top and the bottom. lower.
Whenever we talk about patents, we must bear in mind that ideas that are registered do not always reach the market. It is likely that they will stay only in that, in some ideas. But some get to be defined and go on sale. We do not know if this continuous curved glass will be one of those who see the light.
