“Yesterday, US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that reveals a rather inventive idea of fighting grime on your iOS Devices,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“We were the first to reveal Apple’s initial patent on this subject in August that focused on using a vaporizing method involving a physical vapor deposition chamber,” Purcher reports. “In Apple’s latest method, they reveal an alternate method of fighting grime that uses mechanical wave mechanisms that could use audio or physical vibrations”

Purcher reports, “The interesting fact is that Apple has expedited this patent application which was only filed seven months ago.
