Apple is working on a new product that combines elements of both a MacBook and its flagship iPad.
The tech giant’s patent for the hybrid machine has been published by the US patent office under the name “wireless display for electronic devices”.
Features of the gadgets include a keyboard case and detachable touchscreen that can be linked up to make a laptop, or separated to become a tablet.
The major difference between Apple’s device and products released by its competitors – such as the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga and Dell XPS 12 – is in the way it would be charged.
Its screen has a wireless chip that sends signals to the base wireless chip and a power wireless chip that is “in communication with the power source”, TechRadar reports.
The screen does not always have to be in contact with the base – it is also able to connect wirelessly to a smartphone, camera or other device without being physically attached.
Apple’s other recent innovations include its iPad mini, a 7.9-inch device it claimed is the perfect size for a tablet.
