Apple wants to toughen up your future iDevices

Apple’s patent application might be something that all gadget lovers would want to see in their future purchases, since the fruity company is trying to find ways to make gizmos a whole lot more scratch-resistant and durable than they are currently – without sacrificing on its pricing, of course, thanks to affordable nitride coatings on top of stainless steel exteriors. Here’s what the patent application has to say about it.

In addition to providing a durable, hard surface that is both scratch and impact resistant, the nitride layer allows for the natural surface color and texture of the underlying stainless steel to remain visible to the user. It is this natural surface color and texture of the stainless steel that adds to the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the consumer electronic product, thereby enhancing the user’s overall experience.
