Apple is proud of its minimalist, refined product design. It is no wonder that the company has its own idea of what a protective face mask should look like.
Bloomberg reported on Wednesday that Apple designed special face masks and has begun distributing them to corporate and retail employees, most of whom currently wear protective masks at work to curb the spread of COVID-19.
According to the news release, Apple actually delivers two different face masks to employees. A clear mask called (surprise!) ClearMask was obtained from other companies. The new mask, called (again, surprise!) Apple Face Mask is made internally by Apple̵
MacRumors has acquired an image of the mask, and it is not very much out of the ordinary – it is a white mask with a triangular shape on top to sit comfortably on the nose, and a rounded bottom for the user’s chin.
“The new Apple Face Mask is light, comfortable and effective in keeping you and others safe,” Apple said in a campaign screenshot provided by MacRumors.
Apple confirmed the news to Bloomberg and said that they have conducted careful research and testing to find the right materials for the mask’s filters.
The company will begin shipping Apple Face Masks to its employees within the next two weeks.
Especially while Apple delivers face masks to customers in their stores, these will not be Apple-made masks.
