Finally, Apple decided to make its products thicker in an effort to give people what they desire: functionality over form, and it is a good thing. The firm set two most recent examples: 2019 iPhones and the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro. It might seem this may be that there are few design changes made just after the departure of Jony Ive, the former chief design officer of Apple. Ive was famous for making elegant products, whereas just have a look at the older MacBook keyboard, possibly at the cost of functionality. Form over function, according to them. The best example: The abundance of glass at the new HQ of Apple, designed by Ive, was causing Apple’s users to walk into windows, according to Bloomberg, supposedly.
Here we are not hitting the abilities of Ive to create great products. Just have a look at the iPhones during the past many years along with the iPad, AirPods and Apple Watch. However, there were just parts of those gadgets that looked flawed because they were too thin. For example, if you look back at the iPhone 8, the phone measured only 7.3-mm thick, an example of a seeming obsession of Apple with developing devices that were as thin as possible while frequently at the cost of battery life. However, this year, Apple put the main focus on battery life because it seems that it’s one of the top things users want from their iPhones along with the best cameras.
The thickness of Apple Products
So, because of focusing on the battery life of the iPhone 11, it slightly fatter at 8.3-mm thick. It’s scarcely noticeable but reveals that Apple comes to know that people are willing to compromise on thinness for an iPhone that lasts all day. 16-inch MacBook Pro that announced a few days back, it’s less than one mm thicker than the 15-inch MacBook Pro that it replaces, and it weighs around 4.3 pounds four pounds in the model. It’s two percent larger than the fifteen-inch MacBook Pro, too. All of this helps Apple include users want in a similar but somewhat bigger form factor: a keyboard with keys that one can truly tap into, and that works, rather than one that’s specifically flat with very little key travel.
