Apple has reportedly been working on new matte back iPhones and MacBooks.

It's been well over a decade since we were able to choose a colour finish on our Apple MacBooks, and probably one of the most exclusive versions was the black one. However, those MacBooks were by no means similar to that of what we get today, such as the Apple MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

Today, all Apple computers are brushed aluminium and feature mainly their raw silver finish. However, a new patent has revealed that Apple will be producing a new range of Apple MacBooks with a matte black finish, and this look will possibly roll over to the new iPhones, iPads and even the Apple Watches too.

Now, matte black isn't anything new, especially in tech devices, but what makes Apple's new finish different is that they are taking a similar approach to what BMW has done with their "Vanta Black" colour. This is a specialised paint technique that makes use of a microstructured texture that absorbs the most amount of light possible to achieve that incredibly dark effect.
