“Thomson Reuters is out with new a paper, titled ‘Inside the iPhone Patent Portfolio,’ with the goal of highlighting “patent and litigation activity across Apple’s 1,298 mobile patents,” Jordan Kahn reports for 9to5Mac.

“Within the report, Thomson Reuters IP analyst Bob Stembridge takes a look at the 416 smartphone patents Apple has filed since the launch of the original iPhone in 2007 to determine what new technology Apple will likely include in future versions of the iPhone,” Kahn reports. “Among the new technologies, the report claimed could likely end up in a future iPhone: a fuel cell system for keeping devices charged for days or weeks and an educational feature in iOS that would display images and more information about text.”

Kahn reports, “The paper also studied the patent wars and put together a chart tracking all of Apple’s IP-related litigation from 2008 to 2012.”
