Apple continues to register patents on the design of interface elements iOS. On Wednesday, as reported by PatentlyApple, the company received a patent for the updated image of the icons on the App Store and Siri. The new design was presented in 2013 with the release of iOS 7.
When Apple officially presented the “seven”, many were discouraged. Apple’s chief designer Jonathan Ive completely changed the icons system applications, selecting the most unusual of all possible colors in the palette. Users kept a timid hope that this version of the platform was only a draft, the appearance of which will be further revised. Users have lost hope, when Apple started to register patents.
In the summer of 2013, Apple has registered the FaceTime icon and icon system iOS apps, including Camera, Calculator, Clock, Contacts, Mail and Compass. Later in the list were added Safari, Stocks, Maps, Weather, Notes, Videos, Messages, Newsstand, Passbook, Settings, Reminders, and some elements of the iOS interface buttons, switches, etc. In October last year Apple patented the design of updated Passbook icons from iOS 8.
The present application Apple assigns the exclusive right to the use of icons design, App Store and Siri. Brand covers a variety of applications, ranging from sports and social activities, to tourist services and sommelier services, reflecting the broad thrust of services.
