Apple secures 17 patents, including wireless sync

“The US Patent and Trademark Office officially published a series of seventeen newly granted patents for Apple Inc. today,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“Noteworthy are two patents relating to iOS cameras and one for wireless synchronization,” Purcher reports. “It’s unknown at this time if Apple’s wireless synchronization patent will be retained for purely defensive purposes or used offensively to challenge competing products.”

Purcher reports, “While synching has existed for some time, it’s the manner in which Apple’s media manager organizes content during the synchronization process so as to automatically synchronize media content stored on the media player with media content stored on the host device that’s key here. This granted patent could also support any future iCloud related patent.”

All of the info and many of Apple’s patent applications illustrations are in the full article here.

    1. wp7fan,
      Yes and no. See its about how you sync not that you used the word sync. Cause people have been “in sync” for years so would that make Microsoft using prior art??? LOL

      Then again lately judges have been playing “know it all’s” and declared patents void. Gee I thought that was the job of the patent office.
