Apple wins patent on SIM card connector concept
Apple has won a USPTO patent on a proprietary SIM card connector format, notes AppleInsider. SIM cards are used in all GSM-based cellular devices, which in Apple's case includes models of the iPhone and iPad. The patent documents ways of inserting or removing a SIM card, specifically in a way that protects both the card and the device from being damaged if a person makes a mistake.
