Designed by the Cupertino-based tech company's iPhone team, these masks are of two types and comes with varying degree of protection and accessibility.

iPhone maker Apple Inc. has developed a self-designed mask for its employees to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Designed by the Cupertino-based tech company's iPhone team, these masks are of two types and come with varying degree of protection and accessibility.

The Apple face mask was recently unboxed on a popular YouTube channel called Unbox Therapy, and is a first-of-a-kind product designed in-house by the Cupertino giant for its own employees.

The video posted by popular YouTuber Lewis Hilsenteger revealed a white mask that comes in a three-piece design and allows it to extend over the nose and a little under the chin. The pack comes with five sealed reusable masks.

The Youtuber explains that these masks can be used for a certain number of times, after which it can be discarded.

The Apple face mask needs to be washed every eight hours, and each mask can be used up to five times (up to eight hours in each usage). It also comes with adjustable strings for a better fit.

Its other mask called a 'ClearMask' claims to be the first FDA-cleared surgical mask that is completely transparent. It is aimed at providing more ease for people with hearing impairments to visually communicate. The tech giant has collaborated with Washington-based Gallaudet University to develop this ClearMask.

The iPhone maker is also working on its own transparent mask to be distributed to its employees in the future.

The company conducted careful research and testing to find the right materials to filter the air properly while not disrupting the supply of medical personal protective equipment. Apple Inc. developed these masks to distribute to corporate and retail employees to limit the spread of COVID-19. As of now, it is unclear if Apple plans on selling the Apple face mask or the ClearMask to the general public.
