Apple patents a new grater design for iPhones

April 1, 2021

The patent is 100% real, although some think it is an April Fool’s joke.

Apple has filed and received an official, 100% real patent for a new design of their iPhones. Matching their new Mac designs, the patent is for an iPhone that has a cheese grater exterior rim. People online are not liking this idea at all. Most users say that the cheese grater design is impractical, because one usually has a cover on your phone, which would conceal the design in any event.

Others say it will be very uncomfortable to hold. Some also cite the fact that dust can enter through the holes as a major turnoff. Although this story might seem like an April Fool’s joke, it isn’t, seeing as the patent is real. Only time will tell if Apple really plans to roll out these new designs.
