Apple has patented an all-glass outer casings. The all-glass device casings could be used to hold the internals of an iOS device or to house a TV or even a monitor.
The all-glass structures are designed for maximum durability and supreme weight savings.
Unlike the iPhone 4, which featured front and back glass panels, the patent would allow Apple to build completely glass-encased gadgets, which would allow for a completely different aesthetic versus other gadget-maker’s designs.
The future keeps marching forward.
