“The new apple face mask is light, comfortable and protects you and others effectively.” reads a MacRumor image recently obtained from an Apple employee. The three-layer mask filters both incoming and outgoing particles and, like other cloth masks, can be washed and reused up to five times.
Apple, who confirmed the news to Bloomberg, says that in order to create its reusable mask, The engineering and industrial design teams conducted research and precise testing to find the best materials to ensure the safety of their employees without compromising the supply of medical personal protective equipment.
The company also said it will ship the masks to its employees in the next two weeks, which means there are no plans to sell them to the public as yet. Apple provides basic surgical masks to customers, but not the ones they design. Finally, the tech giant appears to be working on a transparent face mask as well.
