Now some new patent filings have been revealed for an Apple Smartwatch, the patents were granted to Apple recently, and you can see some of the drawings from the patent filing below.




The Apple iWatch patent filing comes with U.S patent No. 8,787,006, and it is for a ‘wrist worn electronic device’, that can be connected to other devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod.As noted, much of the invention pertains to a convertible style smartwatch that incorporates a central electronic device removably secured to an advanced strap strap system. The idea harkens back to the days of Apple’s sixth-generation iPod nano, which spawned a cottage industry for ad-hoc solutions that turned the media player into a wrist watch-style device. In fact, Apple’s patent background alludes to the iPod nano by name.

Apple Granted a Patent for Electronic Device Assemblies


Apple has been granted a patent today for their invention relating to electronic device assemblies. Apple's patent application was concealed from the public and this is the first time that we're seeing this invention.


Apple states that the electronic device that they illustrate may be a laptop computer, a tablet computer, a somewhat smaller device such as a wrist-watch device, pendant device, headphone device, earpiece device, or other wearable or miniature device, a cellular telephone, or a media player. As generic as that description is, the fact remains that Apple is not only illustrating a new form factor, they're describing all-new components to support a new device form factor that looks like an iWatch-like device.



Apple notes that the device will support wireless circuitry may include radio-frequency transceiver circuitry such as radio-frequency transceiver circuitry. The radio-frequency transceiver circuitry may include cellular telephone transceiver circuitry, wireless local area network transceiver circuitry, and satellite navigation system receiver circuitry such as Global Positioning System (GPS) circuitry and Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) circuitry.

It has even been known that some companies patent solutions for the sole purpose of preventing new technologies from stealing profits from older more redundant technologies. So what really is the truth here?



Apple has proved to move fast when they have things they want to get out there in order to beat the competition. I mean, Samsung has their Yuom prototype “thing,” so maybe Apple wants to secure their own place in the curved touchscreen spotlight with this new Apple patent. Will there be an iWatch announced one day?
