Apple wins patents on iPhone 4 design, MagSafe
Apple has won several patents today from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Apple had filed for a patent on the iPhone 4’s design and was awarded it today. Interestingly, Apple also received a design patent on the white iPhone — a device that, in 2010, was delayed due to “challenging” production issues.
Patently Apple was first to discover the patents.
Not to be outdone, a patent on the iPad’s case was also awarded to Apple, along with the company’s Smart Cover, which magnetically connects to the tablet and sits on top of the slate’s screen.
