Apple’s Wireless Charging Plans Hope for a Greater Reach

February 2, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Wireless charging has been long associated with iPhones and iPads. But it’s surprising that Apple hasn’t yet got the technology adopted for its devices until now, especially with the rumors coming out like flash floods over the period.

But it appears that all the wait may lead to something innovative that would even have the rival jaws dropped.

Reports now say that Apple is working upon a wireless charging technology, which would not just skip wires, but would also bring in the freedom of being placed anywhere to its devices.

We do know how current wireless charging technologies work; the induction method by which smartphones get charged when placed upon a charging mat.


Apple has got the same technology used for its first ever wireless charging technology in the Apple Watch. But they are pushing beyond the limit for their smartphone and tablet devices.

Expected to come under the limelight next year, the wireless charging technology from Apple is likely to have long-distance charging capability that can have the devices charged within a range of one metre.

All users would have to just enter their smartphones into the ‘charging zone’; no wires, no mats, no pads, and just charge transformation through raw air.

A Bloomberg report says that the Cupertino-based company has currently tied up with their partners from the US and Asia to guide the project in the right direction. The hurdle here is the excess loss of power that could be incurred when carrying out contact-less charging.

With this, there are also many previous patent works from Apple that are now getting re-surfaced. Of these, the near-field magnetic resonance technology discussed a few years back holds some bright prospect.

Apple has always wanted a realistic and practical approach with their wireless charging technology. They would be able to brag that really loud if they do manage to get on with a long-distance charging technology by next year.
