AirPods have been with us for quite some time and we no longer envision them that they don’t charge wirelessly. Like the Apple Watch and soon the same will happen with the iPhone. Although there is a little left for that, but thanks to MagSafe it will become a reality. Apple has already imagined that way of charging for AirPods as well.
At the event on the 13th, when the new iPhone 12 was presented, among others, the new way of charging the phone was presented, which you are also almost forced to acquire if it is your first Apple phone because it no longer includes a wall charger (nor EarPods, so it almost forces you to buy AirPods). MagSafe is called the wireless charging device that attaches to the back of the phone. In this way there are numerous accessories in the form of a cover there Apple had already planned that one of them could house a pair of AirPods.
An Apple patent application published yesterday (filed in August), shows a MagSafe battery case that can not only charge an iPhone, but also a pair of AirPods.
The power supply is designed to provide power to the electronic device and subsequently charge a battery in the electronic device. The power supply can also provide power to different devices. In this sense, the accessory device can include an inductive charging coil that can charge the battery of a device located in the accessory device. The inductive charging coil can be integrated into the receptacle or the cover.
As always when we talk about Apple patents, they may not come true. The company registers many new ideas after the year, but it does not mean that they all materialize. But of course they are ideas that must be taken into account. On this occasion and seeing what has been presented, this patent has a good chance of becoming a reality.
