Apple patent filing signals unique power scheduling wireless charging mechanism

Wireless charging

Apple has reportedly filed a patent application for a unique wireless charging mechanism to enable power scheduling. The patent was filed before the US Patent and Trademark Office. If the patent becomes a reality, you will be able to enable wireless charging transfers in such a way that devices are charged according to the priority. You can charge an iPhone initially followed by Apple Watch, iPad, MacBook and so on.

According to Patently Apple, the US Patent and Trademark Office has published few patent applications originally filed by Apple. It also points out that the patent is related to wireless power transfers and a unique scheduling system.

The patent filing reveals that the whole system is configured in such a way to transmit power over the wireless power transfer link. Previously, we had heard about the over the air wireless transfer and it remains to be seen as to whether the latest patent is related to it somehow.

According to VentureBeat, the iPhone manufacturer in partnership with Energous have been working together to design and manufacture a wireless charging technology since 2014. We have to wait and see whether the upcoming power scheduling technology is related to the partnership.

In November, the Cupertino-based tech giant filed a patent application for a foldable device that can be opened and closed like a book. The flexible portion enables an electronic gadget to be folded as and when required. Likely to be equipped with a flexible display, you can fold along a bend axis when the device is folded.

Technology is changing on a daily basis and the unique power scheduling technique is a step in right direction. The wireless charging will gain importance in 2018 and it is essential for devices with priority to get adequate charge initially. A device with 20% battery should be charged first instead of a tablet with 80% charge.
