On January 17, 2015, the US Patent & Trademark Office published Apple's latest trademark filing for "iPhone" which was filed late yesterday. Although Apple's "iPhone" is already a Registered Trademark, they're now technically seeking to file "iPhone" under a new International Class for specific added protection.
Apple's iBooks was first announced alongside the iPad at a press conference in January 2010. Today the US Patent & Trademark Office published Apple's latest registered trademark for their iBooks icon that was revised for iOS 7. Apple originally filed for their trademark in the US on October 17, 2013.
Last weekend we reported that Apple had filed a trademark application in Hong Kong for their revised Mac logo. Today the U.S. Patent Office published two trademark applications from Apple for the same logo in color and black and white. The new Mac Logo better reflects Apple's flatter User Interface that was first introduced last year with iOS 7 and now extends through to OS X Yosemite.
Apple has filed for a number of "Apple Pay" trademarks (word and logo versions) in the U.S., Europe and China since introducing their new mobile payment wallet for the iPhone. Today the US Patent & Trademark Office published two new trademark filings for "Apple Pay." It's evident that Apple's legal team had decided to strengthen the specific verbiage found in the two international classes when compared to previous filings. Report Updated December 3.
