Apple's design team created protective masks specifically designed for the company's employees.
This personal protective equipment is extremely comfortable and covers most of the nose and chin. The mask has three layers and is washable up to five times. Adjustable fasteners allow for a better "fit" of the accessory to the contours of the wearer's face.
Images of the new mask have not yet been published, no official statement from the company has also not yet been received. About the creation of the Apple Face Mask became known from the message Bloomberg. According to the publisher, the mask was created by the same designers who are responsible for the appearance of the iPhone and iPad. Bloomberg reports that the result has a unique look.
In the best traditions of the company, the mask was created taking into account all environmental standards. At the same time Apple designed the mask with the existing personal protective equipment supply chain in mind, trying not to disrupt existing flows.
To the disappointment of some Apple fans, the unique masks are created exclusively for corporate and retail employees. Nothing has yet been reported about the possibility of their appearance in retail sales.
In addition to the mask, Apple also created transparent face shields. They were designed so that customers with hearing impairments could see the faces of employees and understand what they were being told. According to Bloomberg, this is the first fully transparent personal protective device approved by the FDA.
This is not Apple's first experience with personal protective equipment. In April, Tim Cook announced that the company would donate 20 million masks to medical workers in the United States.
