Tired of the shades of gray and silver covering Apple Mac products?
A patent from 2019 reveals Apple’s plans
There’s a reason many people are tripping over the iMac Pro, as the only Mac during Apple to get a slightly darker look.
But now Apple has received a patent for light-eating matte black material that they are probably considering for a number of products, including iPhone, iPad and MacBook.
Perhaps this is the coin on the brand new MacBooks with a new design that will be launched next year? It makes sense along with small LED panels, broken frames and maybe an M1X or M2.
The more black, the more glossy the material, but Apple has a solution
And Apple intends to pull it all off: they’re not happy with a black toy, because most consumer products don’t deliver real black. To get real black and very deep black, the colored particles should be “fed to the pores” you see above.
As Apple explains in the patent, there are not enough colored particles on the pores over anodized material.
You probably remember that the iPhone 7 is available in matte black. Since then (2016), Apple has therefore increased research on this
