On Friday, the Hong Kong Patent Office granted Apple a design patent for its brand new desktop computer dubbed “Mac Studio”. It’s Hong Kong’s first design patent for 2022 and probably won’t be the last. There will likely be a design patent for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max with its unique “Dynamic Island” in the works. Also on Friday, the US Patent and Trademark Office this week published a third new trademark application for Claris (a subsidiary of Apple Inc.).

Note: Unlike “patent applications” which provide the public with an abstract, summary and details of an invention, design patents published worldwide are limited to providing the public only with design patent numbers. No additional design specifics are available.
