Apple patents hint at MacBook that can wirelessly charge your iPhone

A pair of newly granted Apple patents show a MacBook wirelessly charging an iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, and an iPad wirelessly charging an iPhone and Apple Watch. 

The plans were spotted by Patently Apple, the Apple news-gathering blog, which reported the tech behemoth had filed patents for two-way charging coils that can be used to charge the MacBook itself, but which also allow the MacBook to charge other devices.

Could this mean the next line of MacBooks will be able to wirelessly charge your iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch? Well, Apple is typically hazy on the details, deliberately burying the specifics of the patent in customary tech jargon to ensure the claims remain as broad as possible.
