Hong Kong Patent Office updated its user interface recently and design patents have been slowly being released. The latest design patents published for Apple cover ten iPhone designs related to iPhone models XR, XS and XS Max. Design patents were "Registered" (same as given) April 23, 2019.
Two of the designs covering the iPhone XR iPhone XS Max were broken out of the package, while the remaining eight designs covering Apple's latest iPhone design are presented in list form. The other design patents are narrowly focused on specific attributes of iPhones such as the "camera" or another that highlights the construction of a corner of an iPhone and so on.
In contrast to "patent applications" which give the public an abstract, abstract and details of an invention, design patents published around the world are limited to merely giving the public the design patent figures provided by the inventor (s) ). No further specifications of the design are made available. Below are the iPhone designs given by the Hong Kong Patent Office.
Apple has filed for & # 39; Close Your Rings & # 39; the trademark with the EU Patent Office. It was filed on May 16, 2019. I expected to post this in the hope of finding other applications in other countries that would provide full international class coverage.
In their EU archives, Apple has refused to disclose what they want protection specifically. The information is only available to EU members. That being said, the classes listed below, listed in Apple's filing, cover the basics of what each class represents:
Class 09: Covering Hardware and Computers
Class 10: Covering Medical Devices
Class 14 : covers clocks, horological instruments
Class 44: covers medical services
