Charging up your Apple Pencil as well as several other smart gadgets will soon get easier by just setting them on the screen of your iPhone. This is exactly the possibility that Apple needs to make a reality, as proven by a patent application recorded by the maker in March 2021.
Currently approved, this patent called “Trought Display Wireless Charging” hints at a framework that would permit an individual electronic gadget, for example, an iPhone or an iPad, to have the option to charge different gadgets through its screen.
As such, this innovation looks to expand the scope of opposite charging, meaning to make the screen the charging point and not the rear endpoint of the iPhone device. An individual smartphone device (e.g., a tablet or cell phone) can remotely charge a smart gadget (e.g, an Apple pencil or watch).
However, the second half of the description bewilders us since it implies that the portion of the screen allocated to charging would be translucent and hence would not provide a display. In other words, it would reduce the amount of area occupied by the slab. Unless Apple opts for a hybrid display space, the recharge coil, as shown in the images, would be situated right below the screen.
In any case, this technology has the potential to be useful, particularly for charging an Apple Watch, AirPods, or an Apple Pencil by just laying them on the screen of your iPhone or iPad. This arrangement might contain a tablet or smartphone that has been configured to charge a pen or other attachment wirelessly.
Notably, a design could include a tablet computer or smartphone that is designed to allow a pen or other smart gadgets to be attached and wirelessly charged on the surface of the personal device.
- Apple envisions an iPhone that can charge various gadgets via the screen.
- Charging your Apple Pencil, as well as a variety of other smart devices, will soon be as simple as placing them on your iPhone’s screen.
- This patent, dubbed “Trought Display Wireless Charging,” was recently approved and suggests a framework that would allow an individual electronic device, such as an iPhone or iPad, to charge other devices through its screen.
- As a result, this invention aims to broaden the reach of opposite charging by making the iPhone’s screen the charging point rather than the device’s back end.
- This technology, in any case, has the potential to be beneficial, especially for charging an Apple Watch, AirPods, or an iPhone by just laying them on the screen of your iPhone or iPad.
