The Airpod brand is being transformed with a new patent that could transform the entire company.
The patent, filed by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), has been in the works for some time and was announced on Monday, September 22.
It was published in the USPTO’s online catalog, and was the first of the many filings by Apple this year, including the company’s first patent application for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
The USPTA is tasked with protecting US patent rights and enforcing them against those that don’t follow USPSTA requirements.
Apple has not issued a statement on the patent, which was granted in January, nor has it commented on the filing.
It is unclear if the patent is related to the new AirPods.
A patent filed by Apple for a new speaker that is compatible with the AirPod patent.
The AirPody was launched in January and is an iPhone-like speaker with built-in headphones.
Apple is set to release the AirPod in 2018, though the company has not yet released a product that would be compatible with that device.
The new patent does not identify a “design element” and instead focuses on the technology behind AirPOD, a “system and method for enabling the use of the Air Pods with a wireless connection to a user’s mobile device”.
Apple is expected to unveil the Airpod at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in October. “
