Title (EN) ATTACHMENT FEATURES FOR AN ACCESSORY DEVICE
(FR) CARACTÉRISTIQUES DE FIXATION POUR UN DISPOSITIF ACCESSOIRE
Abstract:
(EN) An accessory device for use with an electronic device is disclosed. The accessory device may include multiple layers. One layer may be formed from a plastic. Other layers may include a fabric layer and a silicone layer. The accessory device may further include a retaining feature designed to hold or carry an object, such as a stylus for use with the electronic device. The accessory device may include a recessed region suited to receive the retaining feature. This allows the retaining feature to be stored in the accessory device when the retaining feature is not in use. Further, the retaining feature may be co-planar with an interior region of the accessory device such that the electronic device is not disturbed when positioned in the accessory device. In this manner, the retaining feature may be hidden. Also, the retaining feature may be deployed from the recessed region and receive the object.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif accessoire à utiliser avec un dispositif électronique. Le dispositif accessoire peut comporter plusieurs couches. Une couche peut être formée à partir d’un plastique. D’autres couches peuvent comporter une couche de tissu et une couche de silicone. Le dispositif accessoire peut en outre présenter un élément de retenue conçu pour tenir ou porter un objet, tel qu’un stylet à utiliser avec le dispositif électronique. Le dispositif accessoire peut comporter une région en retrait appropriée pour recevoir l’élément de retenue. Cela permet à l’élément de retenue d’être stocké dans le dispositif accessoire lorsque l’élément de retenue n’est pas en service. Par ailleurs, l’élément de retenue peut être coplanaire à une région interne du dispositif accessoire de sorte que le dispositif électronique n’est pas perturbé lorsqu’il est positionné dans le dispositif accessoire. De cette manière, l’élément de retenue peut être caché. De même, l’élément de retenue peut être déployé depuis la région en retrait et recevoir l’objet.
