A matte black MacBook sounds sexy AF, and it could become a reality according to a recently published patent by Apple.
Apple hasn’t sold a black MacBook since 2008. Black has always been the ultimate color. But a genuine black color is very difficult to achieve. In fact, most commercial “black” products are actually just dark gray or blue. But a new patent published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) suggests Apple could be bringing a revolutionary matte black appearance to future MacBooks.
According to the filed documents, Apple has plans for an “anodized part having a matte black appearance” that offers “light-absorbing features” and pores containing color particles to maximize “the matte black effect.”
And that is where the beauty of this matte black is: it absorbs the light.
Apple says it able to absorb “generally all visible light” to deliver a truer black finish without increasing glossiness. The patent explains that it does so by etching the surface of an anodized layer with pores.
According to the documents, the matte black light-absorbing finish can be used on a range of metals and metal alloys, including aluminum, titanium, and steel. That means that on top of a matte black MacBook, we could also hope for a truly black iPhone, iPad, or even Apple Watch.
And that would be sexy AF.
