Apple is Developing new Wireless-Charging Technology
It seems like Apple's next „holy grail“ will be wireless charging technology that could be carried out in the mobile devices, this was reported by Bloomberg. They plan to deploy this cutting-edge tech sometime in the next year but before that, there are technical barriers like loss of power over distance that needs to be overcome. Samsung Electronics Co., Sony Corp. and Google Inc. already have released wirelessly-charged smartphones but there is still problem, they require proximity to a charging plate.
„Apple is exploring cutting-edge technologies that would allow iPhones and iPads to be powered from further away than the charging mats used with current smartphones, the people said, asking not to be identified as the details are private.“
Apple is working with partners in the U.S. and Asia to find a technical solution for loss of power over distance problem and if successful, the use of cable will be past.
