A new Apple patent has been published called Smart Charging Systems for Portable Electronic Devices.
It describes the use of magnets in USB-C cables. This is necessary to prevent damage to the computer in case the wire stretches and takes off.
There are magnets inside the devices.
At the end of the connector is a three-pin contact
The company describes the charging system in cables such as dynamic. That is, it is able to predict when the plug will fly out of the laptop. Due to this, the current in the connector will cease before it is disconnected directly.
If earlier this MagSafe cable worked only with “Macs”, then, judging by the patent, it will now be compatible with the iPhone and Apple Watch. [ CoM ]
