“A recently dug up patent application shows that Apple may be working on integrated wireless charging that will allow your iMac or Macbook Pro to wirelessly charge your other Apple devices,” Rue Liu reports for SlashGear.
“Apple’s patent application describes the system as ‘Wireless power utilization in a local computing environment,'” Liu reports. “It is based on the ‘mid range wireless power transfer physics’ and makes use of wireless near field magnetic resonance (NFMR) power transmission to power devices up to 1 meter distant.”
Liu reports, “The NFMR power supply will be integrated into iMacs and Macbook Pros and will create a 1-meter zone in which peripherals such as mice, keyboards, iPods, iPhones, and iPads can be wirelessly charged.”
