There are rumors that Apple has ordered carbon fiber components for a certain device. Whether it's a coincidence or not, according to the latest patent filings, Apple is actively researching the use of carbon fiber in its device cases.
Now imagine that your smartphone has a carbon body. This means that it will always have an excellent appearance thanks to its non-scratch coating. In addition, your phone will weigh less than the iPhone 5, which is also good news.
The Japanese blog Macotakara posted information from an anonymous source on its website:
Back in 2009 and 2010, Apple received several patents, which indicated strengthening the cases of mobile devices using carbon fiber.
In addition, in 2011, Apple hired engineer Kevin Kenny as a carbon engineer.
The carbon fiber coating is popular for being lightweight, tensile and scratch resistant, and virtually insensitive to chemical and thermal influences.
