Not really. I believe it was in the ballpark of 1200 to 1400 Apple patents per year. Anything their labs comes up with that isn’t patented gets patented. You can see some over at ApplePatented website. Few patents become products. This is true of most big companies.
Intellectual property, no matter how wacky the patent, is money in the bank. It has big tangible resale value and that doesn’t count if a patent becomes part of an in demand consumer product. In part we can thank patent trolling companies that onky reason for being is buying that IP to get fees or file lawsuits.
