Best known for its “i everything” including the iPhone, iPad and iTouch, Apple (News - Alert) has just revealed that it has just attained 17 new patents which range from digital-camera calibration to the way in which computing devices are initiated to an innovative wireless connectivity solution that offers a synchronization functionality.
A recent article revealed that in fact the technology giant has been approved for the patent coined, "Wireless synchronization between media player and host device," which will give the company permission to devise a way to add files to a media device (either a smartphone or tablet) via a wireless connection. This will eliminate the barrier that users once faced when trying to sync their devices if it wasn’t physically sitting on the docking station.
By allowing Apple fanatics to upload music, movies or virtually any other files their hearts desire no matter where they happen to be located at the moment, the company is forever reshaping the wireless connectivity industry by altering how data is transferred to an array of devices.
"Although the media items of emphasis in several of the above embodiments were audio items (e.g., audio files or songs), the media items are not limited to audio items," Apple penned within the patent. "For example, the media item can alternatively pertain to videos (e.g., movies) or images (e.g., photos)."
This is not the first wireless connectivity synching solution to be introduced to the market, as last year Android (News - Alert) devices began to initiate the wireless synching of music files in Spotify. With an eerily similar idea behind both wireless connectivity strategies, Patently Apple highlights that the company could use the wireless-syncing patent for either defensive or offensive purposes, the article revealed.
As the wireless connectivity space continues to expand, there are multiple products that are being leveraged to offer users a much higher level of freedom and usability. HUBER+SUHNER, a key player in the space, offers RF Power Splitters which are low loss reactive splitters that are utilized for the distribution of RF and microwave signals to radio transceiver antenna systems and radiating cables.
