Patently Apple discovered that the Cupertino firm filed the application with the US Patent & Trademark Office on Thursday, and the patent in question represents an innovative way of getting power from a solar panel.

As the patent describes, the technology would see Apple’s iOS and MacBook devices come fitted with a solar panel and the necessary power management circuitry so that the product would be able to hand the incoming power.

Apple is collectively in favour of renewable energy, with 75% of its corporate facilities already powered in this way. The company had committed to bringing this number to 100% in due course.
