If you love an iPhone then you must have come across either videos or photos that show an all-glass iPhone from the future. Jony Ive, who was the chief of design for Apple products, has show interest in an iPhone that is made of nothing but glass.
Apple has now file a patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office for an all-glass iPhone, confirming that such an idea may be in the pipeline.
Also Apple’s patent shows an Apple Watch and Mac Pro tower with glass encasings all around.
The patent file by Apple shows a gadget that is cover with glass enclosures from six sides “defining an interior volume and comprising a first glass member and a second glass member.”
The patent seems to have been written in a very technical language, but the crux of that could be a glass box with iPhone features.
As per Patently Apple :
The electronic device, which could be the iPhone, may come with a force-sensing system, which could be a way to find out any “deformation” in glass regions.
All six sides will be transparent and the device may either use a single slab of glass or multiple glass slabs attach together to form a working unit.
Since each surface may have a different physical distinction, an enclosure may be used “to erase or blend” the distinctions between various surfaces.
Either the front or the back could extend to the next or opposite side to give a larger functional area to users.
Apple’s implementation, may bring a rather futuristic device that will have transparent surfaces all around.
This will also mean that a rather sophisticate palm-rejection technology will be require to prevent accidental touches because of touch-sensitive glass all around.
Just like an all-glass iPhone, Apple may also have an idea for an all-glass Apple Watch and Mac Pro tower, as shown in the diagrams in the patent.
Apple working mechanism and the labels of parts are not available yet.
A patent does not necessarily mean there will be an all-glass iPhone or an Apple Watch or a Mac Pro tower, for that matter.
