1 x cover AirTag accessory design patent report


Apple introduced AirTag on April 20, 2021. Apple expanded the 'Find My' ecosystem with AirTag, an iPhone accessory that provides a private and secure way to easily locate the items that matter most to iPhone users. Apple's AirTag Leather Loop Key Ring and Leather Loop designs have been granted patent in Hong Kong and our report presents a series of the design patent figures to view.  


Unlike "patent applications" that provide the public with an abstract, summary and details of an invention, design patents published around the world are limited to only providing the public with design patent figures. No additional specifics of the design are made available.
