People should think twice when buying an Apple product, as this company is so evil, non ethical that they would charge for air if they could! Please think twice before buying products from any evil company out there as these companies define our future and as evil as they are it's just worse for all of us!
They are allowed to patent a design feature that's been seen on Samsung Galaxy Notes and Windows OS's for years? Something that's just practical and common sense? Next they'll be allowed to patent a shape for the use of their icons or.. I don't know... Some bouncy animation effect or something... I think an investigation into the bank accounts of the patent office clerk that passed these is in order. I'd call for a boycotte, but most Apple users are far too sheepish to vote with their cash based on integrity and ethics.
allsuddenly, 02 Jul 2016hahahaa beautiful answer! I didn't know they even copy "sheep" from Android's fanbois.Again, the word sheep isnt patented by droidsheep.
Its funny referring as 'us' like ur an army of droidsheep.
Petty droidsheep always quick to comment on apple articles. You all have a crazy obsession wid apple!
Its too funny reading droidsheep comments
So sad most of apple's patents are just to make sure other companies don't do it.
Just to make sure the innovation is slow enough for them to catch up
wow fu**, apple is not even the first one to do that on smart phones or tablets. they are actually very late to bring out those features. wow i don't know how that makes sense.
Apple: We'll take windows splitscreen feature and patent it. What a great idea. If we use windows 8.1, instead of the 3 dots in the middle bar next to white line we'll make it a second line and if we use windows 10 which has only 1 line we'll add second. Our splitwiev be soo much different and better than windows splitscreen.
Truth be told, Apple is out of ideas. I mean most Apple buyers except the ones that are here know less about some of the features like these that admittedly have been available on other android smartphone like Samsung.
Apple will build a hype on these for the IPhone 7 and claim them as theirs and iPhone buyers will buy it as they are mislead to think it's exclusive to IPhones. Even most people who are using galaxies will buy the IPhone 7 cause they're not aware that they had all these features all along.
Well, if there be lawsuits of Apple against others is because of mobile operating systems it not go to extend to desktop. It would be overkill ift that happen. Windows OS, Mac OS and Linux OS already there is many time ago these systems use split screen. multi-windows.
Really this looks almost exactly like Windows RT apps from Windows 8 how can apple patent this to begin with It's been in windows for years!

Apple are mad. Patenting a thing that Android also uses. Split screen. And go to be used in Android Nougat for the first time. I want to see if they go to sue Google or Samsung or even LG for that software feature. Samsung and LG already used this feature of their ideia and invention there are some years ago before appear officially in Android and iOS. And Windows since many years, since Xp. Will be that they go to sue also Microsoft? What dirty of these guys of Apple. This is a kind of a fight for see who gets more money with lawsuits.
omgitsdesmond, 02 Jul 2016honestly this is bullshit! one day apple will make patents worthless cuz it will have reached ... moreHonestly u look like a fool. If they patent that, It means nobody owns it..u cannot own somethong if it is already owned by someone. They cannot patent if it is already patented by others. Use ur brain not ur balls.
honestly this is bullshit! one day apple will make patents worthless cuz it will have reached a point where everything anyone originally created is owned by Apple
Sushruth D, 02 Jul 2016See that's innovation Apple fanboys rejoice (sarcasm).... Wait to see second round of patent w... moreHa! Of course the first one to mention innovation in an Apple article is an iHater. You guys need to stop being so obsessed with Apple.
"Apple patents Split View, Slide Over and 3D Touch features"
1st they will copy it and then patent it and then they will called it their own and then they will sue others using it.
regs, 02 Jul 2016that's apple. steal and patent.Use your empty brain...you cannot make a patent if it is already patented by others.
