Apple To Use Carbon Fiber For Future iPad? Maybe.

by on April 11th, 2011

Over the weekend, it was discovered that Apple hired Kevin Keeney as a Senior Composites Engineer. Currently, Keeney is the CEO of a carbon fiber bike design firm, Kestrel Bicycles, which has previously worked with Apple on a carbon fiber patent in 2009.

By bringing on such an expert role, Apple could be looking to use carbon fiber materials for its iOS devices and Mac computers. Just as Apple moved to aluminum, carbon fiber could be the next step enabling Apple to make its products even thinner and lighter.

While it still may be early to speculate about individual products, there were rumors (now known to be false) earlier this year that pointed to the iPad 2 having a carbon fiber casing.
