Apple has filed a patent application with the US Patent and Trademark Office that will reportedly Allow the user set up wireless charging transfers in a particular Sequence to Ensure their iPhone gets power first, followed by Apple Watch and then the iPad.
The Radio Frequency (RF) based long-time wireless charging is on the lines of wireless electricity developer Energous that has been recently granted customer safety certificate for its wireless charging technologies from the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
“The US Patent and Trademark Office published a pair of patent applications from Apple that relates to wireless power transports along with a unique scheduling system,” Patently Apple reported on Friday.
“Apple’s patent notes that the machine is ‘configured to wirelessly transmit electricity over the wireless energy transfer link’,” the report added.
But it’s unclear if this is the equal to “over-the-air” wireless transfer.
Wireless power programmer Energous along with the Cupertino-based giant are working together on wireless charging technologies since 2014, according to tech website VentureBeat.
Meanwhile, earlier in November, Apple filed a patent application to get a yet-unnamed handheld device which can be “opened and shut just like a novel”.
“A digital device may have a flexible portion that allows the device to be folded. The device might have a flexible display. The flexible display may possess a bending area that allows the screen to bend over a bend axis once the unit is brushed,” stated a patent application released by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
