The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted Apple 80 patents Tuesday, including one for a steering device for large vehicles.
According to the approved patent filing, the steering device could be used for a vehicle in a "war situation."
Although Apple was granted the patent, Patently Apple reported that the original application was approved for BAE Systems Hägglunds Aktiebolag last year.
BAE Systems Hägglunds Aktiebolag is a subsidiary of a company that manufactures and markets military vehicle systems, according to Patently Apple.
Russell Phillips, who has authored multiple military tech books, told CNN he believes the new steering device could improve the functionality of something like the Bandvagn 202, which is an all-terrain vehicle used by the Swedish army.
The device is would essentially help a vehicle turn more easily.
