Apple has developed not just one, but two different types of face masks that can be used by its corporate and retail teams according to a new report. The Apple Face Mask is the first created in-house by the Cupertino, California-technology giant for its staff. The other, called ClearMask, was sourced elsewhere. Apple previously made a different face shield for medical workers and distributed millions of other masks across the health-care sector.
The Apple Face Masks have a three-layer design to filters particles. They can be washed and reused up to five times and appear to have a more pronounced triangle shape at the top than do other masks, reportedly to better sit on people's noses without fogging up glasses. They also have a rounded bottom for people's chins, and the ear strings are adjustable.
The ClearMask is the first FDA-cleared surgical mask that is completely transparent, Apple told employees. It shows the full face so people who are deaf or hard of hearing can better understand what the wearer is saying.
The company, which confirmed the news, said it conducted careful research and testing to find the right materials to filter the air properly while not disrupting the supply of medical personal protective equipment. Apple will start sending the Apple Face Mask to staff over the next two weeks.
