Apple extends Liquidmetal agreement to 2015

Apple has extended its exclusive license with Liquidmetal to use the company’s metal alloys until Feb. 5, 2015, according to an SEC filing.

The agreement was originally made in 2010, and last extended in 2012. As noted then, Apple was working with the material in its SIM card ejector tool, but the company has still yet to use Liquidmetal’s alloys in any prominent way; perhaps the material will be used to a greater extent in an upcoming product.
