Apple files for ‘Guest Mode’

applegApple has lodged an Australian trade mark application for the term ‘Guest Mode’.

Filed on September 20, the application was lodged by the Californian headquarters of Apple Inc and an Australian legal representative, Baker & McKenzie.

It covers a huge list of computing and electronic devices across Class 9 – from ‘mobile phones’ and ‘tablets’ to ‘dog whistles’ and ‘electrically heated socks’ (seriously). You can view the whole list here.

Apple has been criticised in the past for not allowing a ‘guest mode’ on its devices.

The tech giant also lodged a trade mark for the term in Europe last week, covering the same classes.

The trade mark application is at the status of ‘Taken For Examination’.
