Side Note: Last week USPTO experienced a massive power failure which resulted in the delay of Apple's patent applications until Monday December 28th. Today USPTO has yet to publish Apple's patent application filings. Whether this is due to holiday scheduling is unknown at this time. Patently Apple will cover Apple's patent applications for December 31, 2015 when they're made available to us today or in the days to come.
