The descriptions cover several domains so we can say it could be for anything that has to do with mobile phones and their related services, including a music streaming service for mobile phones.

The company is rumoured by several analysts to be preparing to enter the mobile phones market this year. Apple has already made a first step to the mobile phones market with a partnership with Motorola that was announced two years ago and resulted on the release of Motorola phones that run iTunes and can play songs that are protected with Apple’s FairPlay technology.

MacosXrumors has been gathering some hints on Apple’s mobile plans but needs to verify them, if you got some info, don’t hesitate to contact us.
