• The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Tuesday granted Apple U.S. Patent No. 8,957,835, entitled "Head-Mounted Display Apparatus for Retaining a Portable Electronic Device with Display." It describes a portable electronic device that could have an iPhone inserted into it and worn on the user's head.
  • The company's solution "temporarily integrates or merges both mechanically and electronically a head-mounted device with a portable electronic device." Illustrations accompanying the patent show a new head-mounted hardware accessory that would have an iPhone inserted into it.
  • Apple's concept also includes a remote control that the user could keep in their hand, allowing them to manipulate the content on the screen while their eyes are obscured by the iPhone display.
