On March 30, 2021, Apple obtained 77 new patents. Some of the patents were announced by Apple in 2019.Mac ProIt has been said that there is a metallic structure that looks like a “cheese grater” in which multiple holes are superimposed three-dimensionally, which was adopted in the iPhone, on the side of the iPhone.
Apple has won a patent for Mac Pro’s 3D structural design that could one day be extended to a future iPhone: patently Apple
Apple Patent Opens Door for Future iPhones to Use Mac Pro’s Cheese Grater Design – 9to5Mac
Apple seems to aim to create airflow and keep the terminal cool by adopting this unique mesh structure for the iPhone case. This will allow the iPhone to have a more powerful processor, says Patently Apple, which reports information related to Apple’s patents.
PatentAccording to Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR, the mesh structure is a three-dimensional structure that can contain one or more cavities “by stacking two cavities so that they are slightly offset.” It is designed to maintain the integrity of the structure while creating a path.
If you put this mesh structure on your iPhone, it will look like this. Not only is the mesh structure arranged on the side, but by using the mesh structure even indoors, it is possible to keep the interior low by allowing air to flow through the terminal.
Apple notes that adopting this mesh structure for the iPhone “can help with thermal management and structural support.”
However, keep in mind that not all patents acquired by Apple are used on products. Given that existing iPhones are water and dust resistant, “it is interesting how to maintain a water and dust resistant design with a case with mesh structure,” wrote the Apple-related outlet 9to5Mac.
In addition, Apple has patented that the mesh structure can be adopted for all devices, such as portable media players, multimedia storage terminals, portable digital assistants, tablets, computers, mobile communication terminals, GPS units, control devices compatible with the remote control, etc. Since it explains what can be done, it can be adopted for terminals other than the iPhone.
