Apple to Use Carbon Fiber for its Future iOS Devices: Why?
Apple to use Carbon Fiber for its future products and has already contacted a Japanese company along with its manufacturing partner Foxconn in this concern, as reported by Macotakara.
According to my source, some engineer of Apple and Foxconn Technology came on Japanese company, which has carbon production in mid-March, and they requested to develop some sample. I don’t have information which is ordered by Apple, source told the number of parts is too large to be called “sample”.
Apple’s quest for using Carbon Fiber for its hi-tech devices isn’t a new info since last year many tech sites reported that the company was focusing at usage of Carbon Fiber for its iPad 2. Moreover, Apple hired the services of Kevin Kenney who had a solid experience of developing carbon fiber for bicycles as the President and CEO at Kestral Bicycles.
Why Apple is intended to use Carbon Fiber for its future products? It isn’t a big question at all. Many tech analysts have a belief that Apple is going to test Carbon Fiber for its iOS devices to bring Wi-Fi sync to them especially to the iPod.
Getting large libraries of music and movies to synchronize wirelessly over WiFi hasn’t been easy, according to a source close to the company who asked to remain anonymous. But Steve Jobs himself sees it as key to updating the aging devices, which are becoming increasingly obsolete in the iPhone/iPad era.
Jobs is pushing hard to get WiFi syncing into the next-generation of iPods,” says our source.
They’ve tried multiple different body designs and materials to get it to work well but it’s been slow going,” says our source. “They have however found many improvements using a carbon fiber design.”
Moreover, Apple fans and users know it well that thousands of iPhone 5 customers are crying over seeing their new devices coming scratched and scuffed …right on unboxing. But Phill Schiller, SVP of Worldwide Marketing at Apple, thinks iPhone 5 Scratching is ‘Normal’ phenomena since aluminum products may scratch or chip with use just to expose their original silver shade.
Here’s the email conversation between an iPhone user and Schiller;
Good day Sir,
I love my Black & Slate iPhone 5, but I’ve been seeing some scuffs, scratches and marks throughout the band around the phone along with many others. What should we all do? Any plans to fix this?
Any aluminum product may scratch or chip with use, exposing its natural silver color.
That is normal.
However, Cupertino based Apple knows it well it is one of the most significant issues iPhone 5 users are complaining for. So they are now seriously thinking using Carbon Fiber for their future products eliminating nasty Aluminum.
