Future iPhones may launch with Mac Pro Cheese Grater design

According to a new patent filed by Apple, the infamous Cheese Grater-like design found on the Mac Pro might make its way on the upcoming iPhone. The report by Mac Rumours explores a patent titled “Housing Construction” that showcases an iPhone using the lattice pattern shell found on the Mac Pro.

The Cheese Grater design was introduced on the Mac Pro back in 2019. It comprises several overlapping spherical cutouts. The company believes that the design allows efficient cooling solutions even under a high workload.

These enhanced levels of heat removal, as described above, can result in significant performance gains for the electronic device and can allow for the use of components or operating levels that heretofore may not have been achievable with existing three-dimensional structures.

Is Mac Pro Cheese Grater iPhone coming soon?

This will enable the iPhones to push their processor even in high temperatures. The patent illustrates how the cheese grater can be used on the edge and the rear of the phone. The cutouts will enable higher thermal efficiency and help dissipate the heat quickly. According to the patent, this also helps maintain a better grip on the phone.

In some cases, a three-dimensional structure can include a relatively intricate repeating pattern that, in addition to enhancing heat removal capabilities and providing stiffness, provides a visually interesting or aesthetically pleasing effect to the user. Such a three-dimensional structure, for example, when used as housing, can also include a variety of colours on one or more regions of the housing to enhance the visual appearance and provide a pleasing aesthetic experience to the user.

The Cupertino-based company also mentions that the lattice patterned design can improve the overall structural strength. It can also improve the overall rigidity of the phone. Another advantage of using the cheese grater design is that it can act as shielding for the device itself.

While Apple files a number of patents every year, only a few are used in production. The Cheese Grater design surely does grab attention and might come off as weird to look at for some people. However, the practical advantages it offers, outweigh the looks. It will be interesting to see if Apple decides to use it on the next generation of iPhones.
