Apple Patents Awesome Wireless Charging System

Share:

Wireless charging is among the most sought-after features at the top of consumers’ wish-lists for iOS devices, but in an interview with Ina Fried of AllThingsD, Phil Schiller suggested the technology isn’t ready to go mainstream – yet. As the latest Apple patent published today by the US Patent Office shows, the company is indeed working on a wireless charging system that could charge an entire virtual charging area’s worth of devices at a time, without the need of a charging pad of any kind, Patently Apple reports.

In other words: a great new system, worthy of Apple’s name. The patent description details Apple’s (upcoming?) wireless charging system, a system that uses wireless near-field magnetic resonance (NFMR) power transmission.

As you can see from the above image, Apple has hit a gold mine with this new method of making wireless charging possible. The only thing you need to own is a future iMac model, which will act as a central station that incorporates an NFMR power supply. Secondly, you will need to place the devices no further than three feet from the iMac to make the wireless charging possible.
