Tired of the gray and silver colors that cover Apple Mac products?
A patent from 2019 reveals Apple’s plans
There’s a reason many people slip over the iMac Pro, as the only Mac in Apple’s range that has a slightly darker look.
But now Apple has received a patent for a matte black material that eats light and is probably considered by many products, including the iPhone, iPad and MacBook.
Maybe this is the coin of brand new MacBooks with a new design that will be launched next year? It makes sense along with mini LED panels, trimmed frames and maybe M1X or M2.
The blacker it is, the brighter the material, but Apple has a solution
And Apple intends to take it all out: they are not happy with the black toy, as most consumer products do not achieve true black. To get a real and really deep black color, the colored particles need to be “fed to the pores” you see above.
As Apple explains in the patent, there are not enough pore-colored particles above the anodized material.
You probably remember that iPhone 7 is available in matte black. Since then (2016), Apple has stepped up research into this
