Earlier today Patently Apple posted a series of new design patents granted to Apple from the European Patent Office that were filed in Germany covering AirPower, iPhone Glass Cover and more. In our second report covering new design patents from the European Patent Office we cover iPhone Plus, Face ID set-up GUIs, iPhone X Natural Light camera Mode UI, the Hermes Paris UI for Apple Watch and more.
Unlike "patent applications," design patents that are published by the U.S. or any foreign Patent and Trademark Office only provide the public with architectural drawings or figures for any given patent and never reveal pertinent information about a particular design in terms of materials, parts and so forth. All we get are simple patent figures as noted below.
Design Patent: Apple iPhone 8 Plus
Design Patent: iPhone 8 Battery
Design Patents Covering Face ID Set-Up
Design Patent #2: iPhone X Leather Folio (Case)
Design Patents: iPhone X Natural Light & Apple Watch Interface
