Apple is working on a patent to develop a new solution that will make it easier to charge between the brand’s devices. The name of the app is “Inductive Charging Between Electronic Devices”, which gives a clear idea of what it will offer.
It seems that by placing inductive charging coils on devices, it should be possible to charge an Apple Watch, iPhone, or AirPods just by placing them on a MacBook or iPad.
The reverse will also be possible so that you can place all the devices, one on top of the other, and charge them all at the same time thanks to a connected power adapter (iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch).
An interesting detail of the patent is that if you choose to place your iPhone on an iPad, the design changes so that the screen content is not obscured by the mobile. We’ve already seen an FCC filing suggesting that the iPhone 12 might be able to charge in reverse mode.
Wireless charging support is already available on products like the Apple Watch and iPhone, so it is reasonable that in the long run it will be offered for all Apple devices. However, it will take time for the patent to become a reality.
This year, with the arrival of MagSafe Dual Wireless Charger, one of the most requested problems by users of Apple products, who always wanted to be able to charge two devices of the brand simultaneously.
