Could Apple adopt the new Intel Wireless platform for its Macs?


Intel’s future Skylake processor, CNET reports, aims to cut all cables connecting a computer from its power sources. In fact, a wireless charging chip was presented today at Computex, the largest Asian tech-show.

During the presentation, Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s PC client group, presented wireless displays, docks and features that aim to cut all the cables you should have in a typical PC charging environment.

For the purpose of charging, Intel uses magnetic resonance, Alliance 4 Wireless Power (A4WP) charging technology.

For “hook-up” reasons, it uses the high-speed WiGig standard, which offers speeds of up to 7 Gbps.

What Intel unveiled today is a platform that will debut next year with products that support these wireless protocols. Since Apple is using Intel chips in Macs, it may be interested in adopting the above technologies in the future.
