The most notable aspects about the current generation of Apple products,Apple are their sleek and futuristic curves and their ease of use.

Apple have revolutionised the way we interact with devices, with competitors left to play the catch-up game. To maintain their position in the mobile and computer market as one of the most innovative companies, when it comes to interacting with their devices. Apple have now patented – which was awarded on tuesday 20th January – the way their devices display data (in particularly the iPhone) and the way your fingers are used to operate different functions and features such as the pinch-to-zoom feature.

For the ‘techno-nerds’ and ‘geeks’ you can read the full patent.
