For some time that we heard no talk of Liquidmetal, that material that Apple took all their rights five years ago. And although we know that it is only present in the clip that is included in the iPhone boxes to remove the spring from the SIM card, in Cupertino must have more plans as they have renewed his contract until 5 February 2016.
MacRumors, who also detailed that this renovation implies that any company can use Liquidmetal if you don’t want to deal with the squadron of lawyers of Cupertino has discovered. But despite the jealousy with which Apple claims this material, at the moment we have not seen more than patents.
How would an iPhone made of Liquidmetal?
Years ago we have forgotten this, but perhaps in Apple continue studying it: in the future we could see an iPhone made entirely of Liquidmetal. It would be lighter and more resistant to corrosion and shock, and you endure more pressure since it would be more elastic.
The reasons that even we have not seen any of this can be various: perhaps the iPhone made of this material ends up being too expensive, or have problems receiving signals… but if Apple have decided to continue staying material for them, means something.
