Apple Patent Looks Into Using WiFi Routers For Wireless Charging


Considering that Apple's most notable iPhone upgrades in recent years ranged from superfluous to outright infuriating.

The report also noted that OLED display for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are much larger than that of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, respectively, released past year, but will have an overall touchscreen display size closer to the iPhone 7.

As things stand, the next line of iPhone models is set to arrive at some point in September 2017.

Previous reports suggest Apple is experimenting with 10 separate prototypes for the next iPhone.

In order for Apple's iPhone to take those signals and convert them into energy, the company describes needing a transmitter and receiver that are both equipped with antennas to capture the router's signal. However, there is ongoing speculation that the Cupertino giant is looking to overcome such an issue by introducing a radical design change in its highly-anticipated "tenth-anniversar" iPhone model.


Interestingly, the video also imagines a hidden or an invisible front-facing camera.

Benjamin Geskin‏ posted on his Twitter account a purported internal drawing of iPhone 8 schematics. If this leak turns out to be accurate then the iPhone 8 will deliver several features that have been expected for some time. The photos shows the absence of the physical home button. This is similar to what the Samsung Galaxy S8 has.

Ridding the iPhone 8 of the Home button will enable the display to extend to the outer limits of the body of the device. LG has also released a handset with seriously slimmed down bezels. The device pictured features a vertical dual-lens rear camera with an LED flash in the middle, and it includes a large circular area, perhaps for some kind of wireless charging functionality.

We don't know for sure if we have any better reason than usual to look forward to the next Apple release. Apple has explored adding augmented reality-based features and depth-of-field enhancements to its iPhone camera system.

The iPhone is Apple's most important product, representing about two-thirds of sales. According to Apple Insider, they theorize that power transfer can occur in communication signals ranging from 700 MHz and 2700 MHz and on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wifi bands.
