iPhone 6 To Have Wireless Charging
The rumors are circulating about Apple’s 2012 iPhone a.k.a the iPhone 6 may have a feature that will enable it to have wireless charging.
Apple’s new patent filing points to the possibility of wireless charging in a future iPhone, as the company continues to look for innovative ways to stay ahead of the competition.
If this dream becomes a reality, think about it: no need to carry around an adapter, no worry to lose said adapter and cough up the money for a new one, no extra wires to co-mingle with the mess already in place from your other devices.
The WSJ report released last week mentioned that Apple is experimenting with “a new way of charging” the 2012 iPhone.
How Wireless Charging Works ?
Induction charging works by inducing a current in a coil of wire from one device to another. A charger device (Palm’s Touchstone charger, for instance, or a mobile device “charging mat”) contains a large coil of wire inside. When a current passes through the coil, it creates a small magnetic field around the coil. When a second coil—embedded in a mobile device like a smartphone—is brought into close proximity of the first coil’s magnetic field, it induces a current to pass through the second coil.
Near field magnetic resonance (NFMR), on the other hand, can work over much larger distances. The power source is a relatively low power magnetic resonator, which creates a stronger magnetic field than a typical induction charger. Devices then use a tunable resonant circuit that can “dial in” to the specific frequency of the power source. The tuned resonance increases efficiency, as high as 90 percent—while increasing the size of the usable resonant field.
So,Apple is making every attempt to take iPhone further with growing competition from Android and it would be nice to see whether Android-enabled phones as well implement the Wireless Charging Technology.
