Apple is working on developing a wireless charging system that could be available in 2017, according to information published by Bloomberg.
Information says that Apple is working with several partners in the United States and Asia to develop such technology.
Wireless charging will allow iPhone and iPad to charge at a considerable distance from the power supply or any other element allowing induction charging process.
Before this becomes a reality, the company must pass several technological challenges that stand in the way of a true process of charging power, without induction.
The main problem with such a solution is losing energy over a long distance. That means as the device is on, the charging process is longer.
At the moment, there are no details about how Apple intends to solve this problem, nor that would be an optimal area where the device should be placed. Even Apple examining all possibilities and how they could implement this technology.
Wireless charging has been circulated that functionality will be present on future iPhone 7, which will be launched this year. However, new information reveals that it will not be available on the new smartphone, but will only be available in 2017.
Apple filed documents to obtain several patents related to wireless charging technology. In 2010, he submitted documents to obtain a patent for a device that acted as a hub for wireless charging of iOS devices, at a distance of 1 meter. This device would use a technology called magnetic resonance.
Watch Apple has the ability to wireless charging, but in a different way. Using induction charging, which means that the device must touch the charging pad to charge.
It is a process similar to that of several Android devices that implement wireless charging. It remains to be seen what will be the result of the work of Apple devices to facilitate loading and escape the drudgery wires stretched across the room.
