Liquidmetal is all Apple’s for two more years

By Aldo Panessidi

Apple has extended its deal for exclusive access to Liquidmetal (for use in consumer electronics equipment) for two more years. This could mean the rumors are true that this incredibly tough metal alloy might be used as the casing material for the iPhone 5.

Liquidmetal is all Apple’s for two more years

So far, Apple has only used Liquidmetal for the SIM ejector tool for their iPhones and iPads. It could be that this is Apple’s way of testing the material and the manufacturing process together before committing to its use in a component as critical as the iPhone’s case.

It could also mean that we are seriously over-thinking this one, and Apple just likes the Liquidmetal ejector tools.
