In 2003 Apple introduced a breakthrough in video conferencing via iChat AV software and the new external iSight digital video camera. While the external iSight camera is no longer on the market as a separate peripheral, the iSight camera has resurrected as an internal camera integrated into Apple's latest iPad 4 and iPhone 5 delivering 8-megapixel photos and stunning 1080p HD video quality that really shines on Apple's Retina Display. Today the US Patent and Trademark Office published the certificate that registers Apple's iSight trademark under number 4,260,675.
Apple's "iSight" Now a Registered Trademark
Apple filed for the "iSight" trademark in April 2012 under application 85588313 listing a single International Class 009 that specifically covers "Cameras; still and video cameras incorporated in computers and handheld mobile digital electronic devices."
