Patent suggests Apple could be working on a drone project

Follow Us:

Key Highlights:

  • Apple, being an American firm, is known to file patent applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office or USPTO.
  • An article by 9to5 Mac stated that some Apple patents, which cover a variety of goods, may never see the light of day.

Apple Patent Application

A new patent application for an Apple drone has just been discovered. According to the application, Apple is seeking to patent an “unmanned aerial vehicle,” or UAV.

According to DroneDJ, a recently disclosed patent application revealed that a new Apple drone might be in the works. Two more drone-related patent applications have since been published, with the initial filings implying that Apple was attempting to keep the project a secret.

Patent applications are open to the public. Of course, it was noticed that certain individuals are now making a habit of reviewing those that Apple filed in an attempt to gain a juicy new lead on prospective impending items.

Patents Filed in the US

At the present, it appears that Apple has attempted to conceal these programs. According to reports, the Cupertino behemoth can accomplish this in two ways. The first would be to maybe postpone the publication of a certain patent application until it was eventually made. The second option is to file applications in countries other than the United States.

Apple, being an American firm, is known to file patent applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office or USPTO. This is often where the majority of consumers search for hints about new releases. Apple recently agreed to remove the Face ID disablement if iPhone 13 consumers opt for third-party repairs.

Patent applications filed in other nations, on the other hand, are less likely to be discovered.

According to Patently Apple, the business first applied for the Apple drone patent applications in Singapore rather than the United States.

However, both patents have also been filed in the United States. The first patent covers techniques for pairing and unpairing certain drones with controllers. It was observed that it was written in the traditional “past tense.”

Apple Drone Disclaimer

It still appears to be discussing a way of passing control of a drone from one controller to another while the drone is still in flight. The second refers to operating the drone over a cellular network, according to reports.

An article by 9to5 Mac stated that some Apple patents, which cover a variety of goods, may never see the light of day. It was reported that the corporation really says no a lot more than it says yes on a rare occasion.

Regardless, the publication remarked that it would be a rather reasonable product area for Apple to be researching. This is because Apple’s iPhones and Macs place a strong emphasis on photography and filming. Apple has also engaged former Tesla staff to work on the impending Apple Car.
