It's in the logo: Apple patents new antenna design
Antennagate marred the iPhone 4's release, as Apple's metal-band antenna was faulted for frequently dropping calls. But, according to Patently Apple, engineers have patented a new antenna for MacBooks and iPhones that fits behind the company logo.
The article also points out two things that could give consumers a peek at what Apple is thinking for the future: This is the third telephonic patent for the MacBook, and the patent mentions that the antenna could be used in jewelry such as wristwatches and pendants.
