Reverse wireless charging is nothing new. It lets you charge accessories by simply putting them on the back of your phone, but Apple may flip things around in the future, literally
A newly uncovered Apple patent shows that the company is working on a new technology that will let iPhones and iPads charge accessories through their screens. The patent surfaced at the US Patent & Trademark
portal and it describes the new reverse wireless charging method in great detail.
According to the patent, this feature will be powered by a double-sided wireless charging assembly that can reverse charge from the front and the back. This charging assembly will be covered by a metallic shield on all sides.
