Investing.com – Over the next two weeks, Apple will unveil two face masks, the Face Mask and the Clear Mask, to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic among employees, Bloomberg writes.
The Apple Face Mask was created by the company for its employees. The corporation's engineers and industrial designers worked on it, working on devices such as the iPhone and iPad. The mask consists of three layers of protection: it is able to retain both exhaled particles and those coming from outside. It can be washed and reused up to five times; it has adjustable ties that stay on the ears.
The company decided to purchase one more masks. What makes the Clear Mask special is that it is an FDA-approved transparent surgical mask. It leaves the face completely open, which allows hard of hearing people who can read lips to understand people better, Bloomberg notes.
Earlier, Apple also introduced face shields to protect against coronavirus.
