How a new app, trademark registration, and a smartphone have changed the way we use the word iphones
Apple has launched its own trademark database and trademark database for the U.S. iphonetalk.com iphoneweb.com The trademark database is currently hosted by Apple and has been a feature of its iPhone app since 2007.
The new database is available for use on iOS and OS X computers.
In addition to the existing Apple trademarks and patents, Apple has added two new trademarks to its trademark database: Phoneweek – an iphonedev trademark and iphoning trademark.
Phoning is the act of sending an emergent phone call.
Each patent includes a separate code to be registered on a new company.
Apple has been adding more patents to its database since the release of iOS 7, which made it easier for consumers to use their iPhone or iPad for business purposes.
Currently, there are more than 1,000 patents in the iPhone and iPad trademark database.
Although it is not clear how many of those patents were filed by Apple before iOS 7 came out, it is likely that more than a few of the patents have not yet been registered.
There are currently more than 3,000 registered trademarks for iphonalink.com, with more than 2,000 of those trademarks belonging to the same company.
Apple has also filed patents for the term iphony, which was first coined by the Beatles in 1965.
It is unclear what Apple intends to do with the iphonics trademark, but the iPhone app does contain a “share” feature that allows users to share the phonic word with others.
If Apple were to change its mind about changing the PHONE trademark to a iphons trademark, it would likely take effect on June 29.
