New Apple Patent Envisions Wireless Charging Method Through Device Orientation A new Apple patent unveils about a smart charging pad

Based on the position, the smart charging pad can charge and synchronize multiple devices at the same time

On Tuesday, the US Patent and Trademark Organization (USPTO) published a new Apple patent, stating about such a smart charging pad that can perform different functions through the device orientation.

Entitled as “Device orientation based docking functions”, the patent describes about such a charging pad that will know how to perform different functions based on the orientation of the device, ultimately providing the users with more flexibility.

According to CNET, if the device is facing down, the pad will be activated to charge it. On the other hand, if it is faced up, not only charging but also the synchronization of the device data with the PC will be initiated.

The patent reads, “Docking functions such as charging, data transfer, data synchronization, diagnostic checking, or other functions may be selected, performed, or both, based on the physical orientation of the user device on the surface.”

The smart charging pad can be used on several devices simultaneously. However, the component is likely to be integrated in the laptop, as stated by the patent.

It will be really a great innovation in the MacBooks if the smart charging pad is really integrated in the device in the near future.
