According to recent reports, the California-based Cupertino giant Apple intends to make its iPhone devices sturdier than ever before. For this purpose, the company is going to use a new titanium body for its next year’s iPhone 14 Pro models.
As per Mashable, a report issued by JP Morgan Chase recommends that the American tech giant Apple aims to provide in its iPhone 14 series that is possibly going to come next year with a titanium alloy chassis.
This is the first time the company would launch the iPhone with this material because Apple utilized aluminum and stainless steel for their devices earlier. However, titanium is harder and more resistant to scratches, more resistant to corrosion, as well as lighter than stainless steel.
Nevertheless, titanium is harder to etch as well as it’s rather liable to fingerprint marks. But, according to reports, the California-based tech giant has a solution for both of these problems. It will do so by utilizing an oxide coating that should remove fingerprints, along with a new blasting, etching, and chemical process that should provide titanium a sheeny finish.
The company mainly uses titanium for its Apple Watch Edition, which was previously used to have a ceramic case. However, as per the other Apple-related leaks, the company intends to bring Face ID to fundamentally all concerned devices such as iPads, Macs, and the iPhone SE range.
However, Apple still does not give any information about when it should ultimately happen. Consequently, this would further indicate that notches on iPhones are here to stay. Although this year’s iPhone 13 is supposed to roll out with a smaller notch than earlier models.
