Late yesterday Apple was granted a series of nine new design patents by the Hong Kong Patent Office. Seven of them related to the Apple Watch, Apple Watch bands and specific parts. The last two covered the iPad Air 2 design. Our report presents you with a jumbo graphic of the main iPad Air 2 design covering all angles.
Overview of the Design Patents Granted to Apple in Hong Kong on Friday
Unlike "patent applications," design patents published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and/or any other Patent Office, don't reveal pertinent information about a particular design. All we are given is a series of simple photos and/or line-art graphics of what was actually registered.
Below is one set of line-art drawings from granted design patent 1500869.9M001 representing the iPad Air 2 design.
A Note for Tech Sites covering our Report: We ask tech sites covering our report to kindly limit the use of our graphics to one image. Thanking you in advance for your cooperation.
