New Patent Shows Apple Is Developing Next-Gen MagSafe Technology for iPhone: Report

<p>It has been rumored that Apple is doing a study on the possibility of wireless data transmission and even authentication of accessories when they are connected via MagSafe.</p>

<p>Apple’s recently approved patent application for “Accessory Devices That Communicate With Electronic Devices” may provide the company with insight into how to improve the intelligence of its MagSafe technology, according to a report by AppleInsider.</p>
<p>As of right now, only Apple iPhone 12 and later models may be charged and magnetically attached with MagSafe accessories. Additionally, iPhones play different animations based on the first-party case or MagSafe charger you attach. Apple wants to enhance this feature even further.</p>
<p>According to Apple in the invention, “For example, certain accessory devices unintentionally create a ‘heat trap’ due to their placement on the electronic device.”</p>
<p>Additionally, it said that although processor technology has advanced, electronic gadgets can now process information more quickly, but this comes with a higher operating temperature.</p>
<p>Let’s now discuss how Apple can distinguish between a MagSafe charger and a case and play various animations in response. “A magnetic field sensor configured to detect a magnetic field from a magnetic assembly external to the housing,” according to Apple, is the reason for everything. Furthermore, “the magnetic field detected by the magnetic field sensor can be compared with a predetermined magnetic field.” An iPhone can distinguish between different goods in this way and adjust its animations appropriately.</p>
<p>Apple discloses in a later section of the patent application that it is enhancing the system by adding a new degree of information recognition. Apple states that “a wireless communication circuit that is disposed in the bottom wall may also be included in the accessory device.” “After an authentication based on the magnetic field vector, the wireless communication circuit may be configured to transmit information to the portable electronic device,” Apple said.</p>
<p>Theoretically, Apple could utilize this approach to instruct iOS on how to match a certain attachment and various tolerances. Additionally, this invention may enable it to wirelessly get additional data from an accessory and use that data for identification and authentication purposes.</p>
<p>Apple may or may not put this into practice, but it seems that they are exploring for innovative methods to expand the functionality of MagSafe beyond merely wireless charging and magnets. It will be fascinating to see how they work in practical applications.</p>
