Apple’s New Patent: Magnetic Design Free Shoelaces

Apple publishes new patent for magnetic design, Apple Find My is the standard equipment for travel wearables

According to the latest list published by the United States Trademark and Patent Office (USPTO), Apple has recently obtained a design patent, numbered US 11614108 B2. The patent does not involve digital devices such as iPhones and iPads, but travel accessories such as luggage belts, and even design patents for shoelaces.

In the patent, Apple stated that the straps have a wide range of uses in daily life, such as women’s handbags, armbands, straps for securing items, and more. Apple says traditional watch straps may require a mechanical connection to secure the strap to an item, and may not allow easy individual adjustments to length and other attributes. More importantly, there will be difficulties in subsequent unbundling.

It is learned from the patent that Apple introduces magnetic features at the connection point, and then connects various materials such as metal, cloth and fiber, and fixes the connection in a more flexible way.
