Apple has announced intent to commence the production of face shields for front-line health care workers fighting the life-threatening coronavirus pandemic.
According to Apple, it will commit to the production of a million face shield a week. Speaking on the development, Apple CEO, Tim Cook, disclosed this on Sunday, April 5, in a video post on Twitter.
While the company remains one of a growing number of tech firms exploring different ways to help during the coronavirus crisis, Apple has not lost its branding sense even in the ugly face of the pandemic.
The company has named its shield in line with its i-culture and housestyle -iShield. The CEO noted that the first shipment of face shields was recently delivered to Kaiser hospital facilities in the Santa Clara Valley, California.
