Apple isn't generally the first to offer another innovation or product for sale to the public. The organization won't put up a product for sale to the public or add another component to its gadgets unless it truly improves the involvement in an important manner.
A previous Apple employee shared a story that flawlessly wholes up this thought, and how it directs the organization's product-development process.
"In any product you make, you need to verify the experience is more convincing than the component," this individual, who asked for to stay anonymous said.
This is the reason certain technologies that Apple tests, for example, solar-charging, don't generally make it into the final product.
Apple had tried different things with adding solar-charging to the Apple Watch's screen so that it could absorb energy in sunlight, as indicated by The New York Times.
Apple has been trying solar-powered devices since as far back as 2008, which is around the time it added to an iPod with solar-charging tech incorporated with its back panel, this previous Apple worker said.
Be that as it may, despite everything we have yet to see a solar-powered Apple Watch, iPhone, or iPod, and there's a justifiable reason behind why — the experience most likely wouldn't be that incredible.
"On the off chance that I had an iPod that worked on solar-charging, and I needed to simply abandon it in the window ledge for five hours, or [if] I needed to position myself so I was hitting the sun when listening to music, that would be a terrible experience," this individual said.
This appeared to be the situation with NFC as well. Albeit the majority of the iPhone's greatest rivals have upheld NFC for a considerable length of time, Apple didn't incorporate it with the iPhone until Apple Pay had launched.
Apple has additionally tried water-safe innovation for devices, for example, the iPod previously. Be that as it may, at the time this individual worked at Apple, the innovation wasn't "100%" waterproof, so Apple didn't advertise it all that much, this individual said. Amid one test, the group was even ready to completely sink an iPod Touch in Gatorade while it was playing a video.
"In the event that it's not 100% waterproof against all odds, you can't publicize it," this individual said. "However, you can coat certain parts and just not tell anyone and after that simply show signs of improved yields, better wellbeing, and better quality."
Generally, when choosing which technologies to test and conceivably patent, Apple tries to consider what might be viewed as "typical" innovation around four years ahead, this individual said. At the time this individual worked at Apple, the organization was at that point testing NFC and unique mark sensor innovation despite the fact that both of those components weren't integrated into the iPhone until last few years.
It's not shocking to discover that Apple, in the same way as other tech organizations, frequently tests diverse sorts of innovation that may never show up in final products. Yet, it is intriguing to find out about how Apple ponders these technologies, and how they add to the general experience of its product.
