Apple has now been granted a patent for its take on the concept of a super-strong magnetic stand that is sturdier and more versatile than the traditional foldable iPad covers. According to the patent granted today, the iPad's magnetic attachment points have been used nearly exclusively for foldable iPad covers. They are not just useful as a mount for the car or a stationary exercise unit. Apple's iPad stand wouldn't use just any old magnet, which could cause damage to nearby magnetized objects, such as the magnetic stripes on the credit cards it is trying to replace with iPhones and Apple Pay. To prevent this, it suggests using rare-earth magnets, the strongest type being neodymium magnets that can be channeled into a well-defined directional pattern.
Monitor Desk Mount
Apple describes the device holder itself as having a cup-like function in which the iPad is slotted into and held in place by magnetic force. As per the patent, the magnetic stand can function so as to join two iPads together in more of a laptop arrangement with one serving as the display and the other as the keyboard. We will be highly anticipating the arrival of this stand but until then check out the Apple stands we have in stock today!
