Apple is a patent filing machine as are many tech firms today. The latest patent app to surface from Apple actually has the name of many of the members of the iPhone team on it. Once the app is approved it will get the Apple name applied to the final patent. The app was filed last year.
The patent app outlines a way that Apple wants to put antennas for various things behind logos on their gear. That means that your future iPhone antenna might be behind the Apple logo on the back of the phone.
According to the app the antennas will be used on notebooks, phones, and other devices. The design allows for multiple uses like GSM, WiFi, and GPS with the same behind the logo design. I don’t care where the antenna is as long as it works all the time.
