Apple wins Design Patents for iPhone X Leather Folio, the iPhone 8 Single Camera Model and more

1 FX Cover - iPhone 8 single camera


Yesterday Patently Apple posted a design patent for the iPhone 8 Plus model and today's report covers design patents for the iPhone 8 (the single camera model), the iPhone X leather folio and a 'Smart Tempo' trademark filing discovered in Hong Kong, China.


Unlike "patent applications," design patents published by the U.S. or any foreign Patent and Trademark Office never reveal pertinent information about a particular design. All we get are simple patent figure visuals as those presented in our report below.


Design Patent: Apple's iPhone X Leather Folio


Apple's description of the iPhone X leather Folio: "Crafted from specially tanned and finished European leather for a luxurious look and feel, the iPhone X Leather Folio fits snugly around your iPhone. Open it and your iPhone X wakes up. Close it and it goes to sleep. Inside there's a soft microfiber lining for even more protection, and space to hold your bills, small notes, and several cards. And you can keep it on all the time, even when you're charging wirelessly."


The first granted patent '0M001 covers the entire folio in full line-art indicating that the entire design is protected.

In Apple's second design patent '0M002 we're able to see that the emphasis is placed on the 'case' portion of the design which includes the face fold over flap but not the internal folio which is presented with broken lines signifying it's not part of this particular design patent.
