Apple Applies for iWatch Trademark In Many Nations

Posted by at 11:13 am on July 2, 2013

Last week, we heard that Apple partner Foxconn was prepping its own smartwatch compatible with Cupertino’s iPhone. However, it seems Apple’s own plans for a smartwatch are moving swiftly along, as the company has apparently applied for an iWatch trademark in Japan and a number of other countries.

Reuters cites a patent official in reporting that Apple has applied for an iWatch trademark in Japan. The news outlet says Apple submitted the application almost a month ago, on June 3, but it wasn’t made available on Japan’s patent office website until June 27. Apple’s not taking any chances on someone snagging the term for a similar device, as this trademark supposedly covers computers, computer peripherals and wristwatches. Apple has also applied for trademarks in Russia, Mexico, as well as Taiwan, Turkey and Colombia.
