Apple patents MagSafe adapter with integrated fiber optics
The United States Patent office has granted Apple a patent for
a new power adapter that integrates fiber optics for data transfer. The images associated with the filing appear to show a MagSafe connector modified to carry a single fiber-optic cable or multiple channels. The system utilizes a data adapter with connections for USB, RJ-45, and DVI rather than terminating the cable at a power adapter. Reports state that Apple has yet to confirm plans to release a fiber optic-equipped MagSafe system.
