Apple experimenting with new way of charging for iPhone 6 and it seems that experiments have already been done for the 2012 version of the phone, where it will rely on a new method that will juice up the handset. The method usually needs a new back design that can draw a charge directly through the device but which eliminates the need for cables and only requires an inductive dock or charging mat and also Apple could use the Qi wireless power standard, where users are able to take advantage of it using third-party chargers…………….
Apple is working on implementing a new way to charge the iPhone 6, the sixth-generation iPhone and the source hasn’t specified what such charging method would involve or if it would replace the current USB charging method, many speculate that the iPhone 6 might be charged using non-contact based platforms. Reports of the sixth iPhone have been quite scarce due to its far-away-from-launch nature. This source couldn’t have made it more clear that the iPhone 6 might not be charged through USB (at least exclusively), like the current one:
People briefed on Apple’s plans said the company is planning a major iPhone revamp then, with one person saying the company has been experimenting with features such as a new way of charging the phone,
Connecting a device to a computer, or plugging it into the wall, is necessary but unpractical. Although information on this subject is very scarce, Apple has a reason to be working on replacing standard charging solutions, and they indeed might be, since previous patent filings have indeed pointed to new charging technologies. A patent filing from as early as February 2007 suggests this changeover:
When electrical contacts are used, the electrical contacts may be implemented in connectors and/or they may be surface or flush mounted on the housings of the portable electronic device and the docking station, […] In either case, each device includes a set of corresponding contacts that when in contact allow data and power to be transferred there through.
It’s possible that Apple might be simply working on changing its default charging interface from USB to inductive, maybe with longer range. The next-generation iPhone on the other hand, known as the iPhone 5, is scheduled for introduction in September at Apple’s annual music event. New features will likely include an 8-megapixel camera, as opposed to the iPhone 4′s 5-megapixel one and a dual-A5 processor inside. Although most sources have pointed to an identical design as the current iPhone, newer reports have suggested that it will have a thinner and lighter design.
