We all know that mirrors are not supposed to be used to view the internet, and even if they are, they’re not supposed for viewing our most intimate thoughts.
But now, a new technology is showing us just how powerful the internet can be at damaging your smartphone.
As part of a partnership between Microsoft and the UK’s Leading Photovoltaic company, Microsoft is using the mirror protection film to protect the iPhone 4 from harmful solar rays, according to The Sun.
While Microsoft’s film is not designed to cover the entire iPhone, the company says it will do so in the future to prevent the iPhone from receiving harmful sunlight from the sun’s rays.
Microsoft has previously been working with the Leading Photogrape company to design and manufacture its own protective film.
The company has also partnered with the British Photoventure Corporation, which is a leading supplier of film for consumer electronics and lighting, to create a film that is designed to prevent harmful solar radiation from reaching the iPhone.
The Microsoft-lead photovoltage film will be available in the UK this September for £19.99 ($27.50).
Apple, meanwhile, has already been using Microsoft’s protective film for some time, and is currently using it to protect its devices from harmful light from solar panels.
It’s been using the film to create protective covers for the iPad and iPhone, and has also been using it for other applications, such as protecting the edges of phones and tablets.
