In the patent application, Cupertino’s signature indicates that arriving at a destination and knowing in advance where parking spaces are available may be a more convenient way to travel . The company of the block assures that the existing solutions, in particular those that can be accessed from a network and that can be used to assist in the navigation and location of the parking lot, “are not available, are very localized or are very limited” .

“The current disclosure presents a technique to identify parking places within a geographic area. In a realization, a database is filled and stored with information associated with parking locations” , indicates the text of the patent.

As is often the case, Apple files many patents with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, some for inventions that never see the light of day, and others if we are given advance notice of the company’s plans. However, you can never know which ones will materialize into a real product.
