1 X Cover - 8 more Animoji Related Design Patents issued to Apple in Hong Kong  Patently Apple IP Report


Yesterday the Hong Kong Patent Office granted Apple a series of Design Patents for Animoji related graphics and more. More specifically, in this second and last design patent report of the day we cover two sets of four Animojis each. The first set presents four characters in three poses each. The second set presents four characters with each illustrating a range of expressions.


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 the design patent figures provided by the inventor(s).


Below are patent figures from 8 design patents that were granted to Apple by the Hong Kong Patent and Trademark Office on Friday. The design patents are broken down into two distinct sets of four patents. One set covers 'Poses' while the other set covers 'Expressions.'
