Last month’s Apple event put an end to the many rumors surrounding the new iPhone 14, and now that we finally have them available we can focus on the most anticipated news and rumors underway on the future generation. There is a feature that users are clamoring for but that has not yet been introduced in any iPhone model: let’s talk about the reverse charging, which in the last few hours has made a comeback thanks to an Apple patent unearthed from Patently Apple.

The publication in the United States Patent and Trademark Office took place last September 29 and refers exclusively to this characteristic. Here is a photo extracted from the documentation, then all the details.

The patent talks about a wireless power system that doesn’t just affect iPhones, but includes electronic devices such as wristwatches, tablets, laptops, removable battery cases, electronic device accessories, wireless charging mats, and other electronic equipment.

The description is common to that of other similar devices and specifically speaks of wireless power circuits equipped with coils capable of both transmitting and receiving electrical power. Some examples are given, such as that of a cell phone internally equipped with a coil which can be used to receive power signals from a charging disk or other transmitting device and which can also be used to transmit wireless current to another. wireless power device (for example, another mobile phone).

Specifically, Apple reports other even more fitting examples, such as that of an iPhone which, using this technology, will be able to charge Apple Watch, AirPods, or other similar deviceswhich is basically what the community has been longing for.

The first rumors about the ongoing development of a reverse charging system by Apple date back to 2013 and are occasionally resumed, as also happened at the end of 2021. As always when it comes to similar news, it is good to remember that the questions of patents do not always find real application in new products, however the time is ripe for something like this and the next generation of iPhones could pave this way.
