Swiss Railway Ticked Off at Apple Over iPad Clock App
While Apple often accuses others of copying its work, this time the shoe is on the other foot.
Swiss railway operator SBB says the design of a new clock app on the iPad copies its signature — and trademarked — clock.
“The rights for this design of the watch are (owned) by the SBB,” a railway spokesperson told AllThingsD. “We are in contact with Apple to seek together an agreement about the rights.”
An Apple representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Design issues aside, the clock is a welcome addition to the iPad, which until now has bizarrely lacked the alarm clock and timer features found on other iOS devices.
