Apple files a patent to use the logo on iPhones as a notification light

If you have been following Apple for a long time, you might remember the nice white logo on the back of MacBooks. Apple, however, went ahead and removed the logo and replaced it with a metal one. The older logo used to light up when you power on the MacBook and it looked good.

Apple now is planning to bring the same feature to iPhones and while they are at it, Apple is also adding a nifty little feature to it. According to a recent patent filing, Apple is planning to add a led light to the Apple logo which can be used as a notification light. The patent titled, “Electronic Devices with Adjustable Decoration” was filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office last Thursday. It explained how the led light on the back of the phone can respond to events such as “incoming communication” or “a calendar reminder”. The patent also refers to different portable devices from Apple like iPhones and iPads, and even includes an iMac for some reasons.

The feature definitely isn’t new and seeing Apple’s history with led lit logos, we can expect the company to add the feature some point in the future. Unfortunately, the patent doesn’t mention if the led light is set to make an appearance on the MacBooks as well.
