Apple is developing charging tech that works from a distance

Apple is reportedly developing technology that would allow you to charge your iPhones and iPads even from afar, and it’s developing the wireless technology to make that a reality, according to Bloomberg,  which claims the wireless charging tech could work over unspecified long distances.

Bloomberg adds that the new technology could appear in Apple devices released next year, so that would rule it out of making its way into the upcoming iPhone 7.

Apple is reportedly working with partners both in the US and in Asia to conjure up a way to beam power to its device.

Energous mentioned during CES 2016 that it has a contract with “one of the top five consumer technology companies in the world.” Energous claims its wireless charging tech WattUp can power devices up to 15 feet away.

Right now, the best “wireless” charging phones don’t require a direct power connection but must be in contact with a mat or charger. If Apple succeed with genuine wireless charging into future products, that’ll help the company further stand apart from competition.

Bloomberg says the iPhone-maker is currently finding a way to prevent power loss caused by the distance between a mobile device and its charging apparatus.
