Apple Now Owns Trademarks For 'Retina' And 'Game centre'

Apple was granted two Registered Trademarks from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office today.

The first trademark is for the word “Retina,” which is used to describe Apple’s high-definition screens on iPhones, iPads, iPod touches, and MacBooks. The second trademark is for the icon used for Apple’s Game centre multiplayer game service, reports Patently Apple.

Apple secured the trademarks on Nov. 27, but the documents were published today.
