New Patent Was Issued by Apple For Wireless Headphones
US Patent and Trademark Office has issued Apple a patent for a wireless headphones for iPhone and other iOS gadgets. Considering that headphones for iPhone 5 was redesigned, the empire of Steve Jobs is considering the possibility of issuing a wired headset, which at any time can be removed from the player, turning into a wireless Bluetooth-headset.
Apple filed a patent and called it Detachable wireless playback device this week. Document title at number 20120250914 unusual and even strange. However, in Cupertino believe that this iPhone accessory has the right to live, besides something like this already exists in the market.
Apple engineers idea is quite interesting: a hybrid wired and wireless headphones that are connected to each other by means of a magnetic connector (something like MagSafe dock connector in iPhone 5). This approach can successfully solve several problems. First, tangled cables can simply be removed and unleash without stopping to listen to music.
Secondly, it is a good compromise for those who are not satisfied with the Bluetooth terms of sound quality, but who may have to use it in exceptional cases (for example, during the run).
Third, it is unlikely that people will always use the wireless mode, so that’s enough to incorporate small batteries in the headphones, without having to increase them.
Unfortunately, the timing of Apple wireless headphones for iPhone is not known. Also there is news that Apple also patented wireless charger for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Lately Apple began to patent everything the company has right to. Almost every day we hear that Cupertino company patented existing or future products. And it is not strange. You may know that now Apple in war with Samsung and several other technology giants.
Some say that this Apple policy is right but others like Steve Wozniak in the interview that it would be much better if Cupertino company cooperates and develops appliances together with Samsung, Google, Motorola.
