Apple wins 25 new patents on wide range of technologies

updated 09:50 am EDT, Thu April 26, 2012

Range extends from Smart Covers to iTunes rentals

Apple has won the rights to 25 new US patents, covering numerous different products, Patently Apple observes. Some of these include a second patent on the iTunes Store and its rental system, and a fifth patent on Time Machine, featuring an interface capable of showing earlier versions of files. The former dates back to 2008, while the latter was originally submitted in 2007.

Some other notable wins include design patents on Smart Covers, the current-generation iMac, Apple Store displays, a power adapter, and the Newsstand icon in iOS. Design patents generally document the look of a given product, rather than any specific concepts.
