Apple is no longer following the ultra-thin trend

Apple is designing thicker products to prioritize features and battery capacity instead of the previous trend of “as thin as possible”.

The clearest evidence for this change is the iPhone 11 or recently the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

In the iPhone line, iPhone 7 is the thinnest device with a thickness of only 7.1mm, up to iPhone 8, that number is 7.3mm. However, the recent iPhone 11 Pro Max is 8.3mm thick, or 1mm thicker – a huge gap in terms of thin thickness on mobile devices.

However, along with that is the battery capacity of the device reaches 3,936 mAh, which is twice higher than the 1,821 mAh of the iPhone 8 and half the 2,691 mAh of the iPhone 8 Plus. But with that, the battery life on the latest iPhone is also much higher, as well as accompanied by many other highlight technologies.

MacBook Pro 2019 announced on November 13 also followed the same trend. The machine is 1 mm thick, the weight increases by 0.14 kg and the size is 2% larger than its predecessor 15-inch MacBook Pro. With the increase in size, what Apple introduced is a new type of keyboard that has a longer key travel and feels better than the previous “butterfly” key.

Besides, the battery life on MacBook Pro 2019 is up to 11 hours, 1 hour higher than last year, and fully charged after only 2.5 hours. Some experts predict that Apple may have increased the size of the battery to make the machine bigger and heavier, but from then on the battery life is higher.

Jony Ive – the “father” of a series of iconic Apple product designs – left the company in June. While in office, he always prioritized the thinness and beauty on the products of but in return, he had to “pay the price” by the function.

Normally, Apple designs the product for years before launching and Ive can also participate in creating designs for the iPhone 11 or MacBook Pro 2019. However, some comments said that after he left, The rest of the team may have advocated performance criteria and usability rather than appearance. They “keep up” to change so that the two names were born.
