Reports have emerged that Apple has filed for two new trademarks in Hong Kong today and the patents were for two figurative trademarks for the number 8. The tech giant had reportedly filed for the same trademark initially in Jamaica in July.
According to the report, one of the filings was made under the International Class 9 which cover everything under the sun, including Computers; computer hardware; wearable computer hardware; handheld computers; tablet computers; telecommunications apparatus and instruments; telephones; mobile telephones; smart phones; wireless communication devices for the transmission of voice, data, images, audio, video, and multimedia content etc.
On the other hand, the second application with number 303906676 was made under International Class 45 covering: (A) “Personal concierge services for others comprising making requested personal arrangements and reservations and providing customer-specific information to meet individual needs, rendered online; online social networking services; providing a social networking website for entertainment purposes; (B) personal and social services rendered by others to meet the needs of individuals; providing social networking services; providing concierge services.”
However, Apple has not provided any other information that could throw more light on the purpose of the figurative trademark but could likely be related to next year’s iPhone 8 flagship.
