Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 launch event is only hours away but for those of you who can’t wait to see what the Cupertino company has got up its sleeves, the latest leak shows Apple’s trademark applications that hints at possible features and products we can look forward to.
According to Brian Conroy, a trademark attorney, he has found Apple’s trademark applications that have been very well hidden over the years. In his findings, which has been published in his blog, Apple has filed for trademark for things like “iPhone 7”, and “iPhone 7 Plus”, which are expected since the launch will be happening later tonight (at 1am on 8 September 2016 to be precise). Apple also filed for “AirPods” and “AirPods Case”, which are believed to be truly wireless cord-free earphones.
Other interesting findings include “Iris Engine”, “Smart Button”, “Touch Bar”, and “Control Strip”. These could be upcoming features for the MacBook – possible name and features for the rumoured OLED Touch Strip for the MacBook Pro, perhaps? You can check out the full list of trademark applications at his blog.
Conroy says that it took him weeks to find these trademark applications. Looking at previous applications and patent filings, he figured where Apple has filed those applications and hired a local agent to physically search for them.
