Apple Granted 11 Design Patents in China for Apple Store Display Stand Components and the FCC Approves new Keyboard +
Late on Friday the Patent and Trademark Office in Hong Kong China granted Apple eleven design patents relating to Apple Store product display stand components. In addition, a new report points to FCC documents confirming that Apple has revised their wireless keyboard and more.
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.
FCC Documents Show Apple Wireless Keyboard Update
Yesterday Slash Gear discovered FCC documents pointing to a revised version of the Apple Wireless Keyboard. The Magic Mouse (A1657) link provided by Slash Gear however didn't link to a design of the Magic Mouse but rather the design that you see below.
The Slash Gear report points to Apple adopting a non-removable lithium battery pack and Bluetooth LE. The new peripheral(s) will likely debut with an update to Apple's iMac.
