On Friday, the Hong Kong Patent and Trademark Office granted Apple two iPad Pro design patents. Apple introduced their new 2021 iPad Pro back in April that featured the M1 chip, ultra-fast 5G, Thunderbold (USB 4) and stunning 12.9-inch Liquid Retina display.
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. Today the focus of the design patents is on the 2021 iPad Pro.
