Apple granted patent for the original iPod

Apple has been granted a patent (20120281344) for the original, click wheel iPod. The patent is for a "media player with a machined window undercut and transparent wall disposed therein."

Per the patent, the media player can include a housing having an opening and an area of reduced thickness around the opening. The media player can also include a transparent wall having a flange. Alternatively, the transparent wall may not require a flange but rather can be a flat, substantially transparent piece of material such as plexiglass or glass. The flange can be adhered to a surface of the area of reduced thickness in order to form a transparent protective cover for the display screen.

The inventors are Douglas J. Weber, Pinida Jan Moolsintong and Stephen P. Zadesky.
