A claim making rounds lately is that 86% of Apple patents attributed to Steve Jobs were for design patents, rather than technology.
Example of such a claim:
Apple’s patent portfolio is weighted toward design patents. According to one study, 2.7% of patents granted to technology companies are design patents, whereas 13.4% of Apple’s 5,000+ patents cover designs. 86% of the 359 patents naming the late Steve Jobs as an inventor are for designs. (source)
Is this claim true?
