iPhone Charging

According to a new Apple patent, Apple may be researching techniques which may enable Macs in the future to wirelessly charge your iPhone.

The “Wireless power utilization in a local computing environment” patent is said to utilise near field magnetic resonance (NFMR) which allows for transmission of power.

Could the world of tomorrow include “Free iPhone charging network” in Starbucks and McDonalds? We’ll just have to wait and see.
