iPhone 5 fake has been confiscated at German Airport

iPhone 5 fake has been confiscated at German Airport

It appears that five devices that are rumoured to be either iPhone 5s or fakes were confiscated at the Munster-Osnabruck airport on July 21st 2011.

It is not certain if they were real or fake but it is newsworthy that Germans are confiscating iPhones, real or fake, at the Airports since there are so many fake iPhones coming out of countries such as china

The passengers which were in possession of the devices had arrived from Turkey.

Reports have suggested that that the airports customs officials are working with Apple to determine the origin of the devices.

More Apple Inc-filed patents have surfaced today (from Patently Apple) they surfaced as part of the many applications published by the US Patent & Trademark Office.

The most interesting patent to surface recently is the iPhone antenna clip which included designs. Some other interesting patents included new finger reducing oil resistant coating and also a patent describing using solar energy as an alternate power source in portable.

From the report:

Apple states that to prevent the deposition of oils on an electronic device surface, an oleophobic ingredient could be bonded to the electronic device surface. The oleophobic ingredient could be provided as part of a raw liquid material in one or more concentrations. To avoid adverse reactions due to exposure to air, heat, or humidity, the raw liquid material can be placed in a bottle purged with an inert gas during the manufacturing process.

The image below shows what appears to be an antenna attached to a small device’s housing via an “attachment member”. Patently Apple reports Apple states the antenna invention could be used in “their iPod family (MP3 players), a radio, an audio/video recorder, a mobile telephone, personal digital assistant, tablet computing device, or other similar device”. They also speculate from the “exploded view above that it might even be an “iPhone-nano-like device”.
