‘the new apple face mask is light, comfortable, and effective at keeping you and others safe,’ reads a picture MacRumors received from an apple employee recently. featuring a three-layer design, the mask filters both incoming and outgoing particles and like with other cloth masks, it can be washed and reused up to five times.

apple, who confirmed the news to bloomberg, says that to create its reusable mask, its engineering and industrial design teams conducted research and precise testing to find the best materials to keep their employees safe while not messing up with the supply of medical personal protective equipment.

 

 

the company also said it will be delivering the masks to its employees in the course of the next two weeks which means that until now, there are no plans to sell it to the public. apple does provide customers with basic surgical masks, but not the ones designed by them. finally, seems like the tech giant is also working on a transparent face mask.
