A New Patent Enables Apple to Move to Wireless Charging

Apple Balla reports that Apple was awarded this week a new patent by The US Patent and Trademark Office, which provides a technology for the users of Apple devices to charge their desktop computers, mobile phones and tablets without the need for cables.

The patent includes a diagram of a desktop computer, its keyboard, mobile music player and a mouse all plugged to the "virtual charging area." As explained in the patent, the system utilizes the “near-field magnetic resonance” power supply that communicates between the device and the charging area.

Wireless charging is already used by several companies, but until now, for some reason, Apple insisted on charging by cords. For a year or so the rumors have been cruising that Apple was getting ready to move to wireless charging. The rumor was supported by several relevant patents. This latest one just confirms that Apple might be ready for a switch.

Of course, having a patent and the available technology does not mean that Apple will have it ready for the market any time soon. But, it is not like Apple to ignore any new technology that is already available by the competitors, especially if it is popular with the consumers.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
