Apple Patent Reveals Wireless iPhone Chargers

Among 27 new patents granted to Apple today is an interesting wireless charging dock concept reviewed by Patently Apple.

Just resting a compatible iPhone on the dock would initiate charging, while a reradiating antenna inside the dock would enhance the strength of nearby Wi-Fi signals. Presumably this wireless data connection would be used to sync the device while charging. Current iPhone models are already capable of automatic syncing while plugged into a power source.
