Apple adds another core iPhone ‘Multitouch’ Patent to its Arsenal

US Patent and Trademark Office officially published yet another core iPhone multitouch victory for Apple that will bolster its legal arsenal. This particular multitouch related patent focuses on the oscillator signal and circuit, which are central to sensing a touch event on a touch display.

“Touch screens may include a touch panel, which may be a clear panel with a touch-sensitive surface. The touch panel may be positioned in front of a display screen so that the touch-sensitive surface covers the viewable area of the display screen. Touch screens may allow a user to make selections and move a cursor by simply touching the display screen via a finger or stylus. In general, the touch screen may recognize the touch and position of the touch on the display screen, and the computing system may interpret the touch and thereafter perform an action based on the touch event.” patentlyapple.com said on its website.

Apple stays ahead of the game by submitting their ideas into the patent offices to gain foot-hold on the ideas. Later when technology is able to produce those ideas, the idea is already protected. Apple recently won a patent infringement ruling that bans some HTC corp. smartphones from the U.S. starting next year.

The new patent filed by Apple will help bolster their legal arsenal with its latest on multi-touch, focusing on the oscillator signal and circuit which is central to sensing a touch event on a touch display.
