Apple proposes ‘on-the-go’ wireless charging via iPad Smart Cover with built-in battery

An Apple patent application discovered on Thursday reveals that the company is actively investigating wireless charging for its line of portable devices, but proposes to use the technology in a slightly different way than existing solutions. It should be noted that current iPads do not contain the inductive charging circuitry required by the patent, possibly hinting that such integrated components are being studied for a future model of the tablet.
