Apple Patents a New Tech to Charge iPhones via Wi-Fi

2017/5/2

Apple is working on a new technology that could change the way you think about wireless charging. The U.S Trademark and Trademark Office has recently published an Apple patent application describing a method that could let you charge the iPhone using a WiFi router. So instead of using a regular wireless charging pad, users would be able to power the iPhone using wave signals.
According to the patent application, Apple would use wireless bandwidth across cellular and Wi-Fi to charge your iPhone. This could simply mean that in the future Wi-Fi signals will deliver internet access and charge your phone. Apple is also proposing a way to boost those signals and convert them into energy. Clearly, the idea is to eliminate the need to plug the iPhone into the wall.
