On Tuesday, “the US Patent and Trademark Office officially published a series of 27 newly granted patents for Apple Inc.,” Jack Purcher reports for PatentlyApple.

“In our first patent report of the day we cover a pair of Apple patents that could be fuel for future litigation regarding iOS functionality relating to scrolling lists, rotating and resizing content on multi-touch displays,” Purcher reports. “Another patent win covers an iOS docking station based on inductive charging that has yet to surface. Perhaps this granted patent opens the door for its release in the not-too-distant future.”

Purcher reports, “To wrap up our report, we list eight other patents in our final wrap up section that covers such things as an uninterrupted virtual private network (VPN) connection service and a light sensitive display.”
