Apple Patent Application Reveals RF Module Plans, Connectivity

Apple has filed for a patent application that would enable all or most of its gadgets and products to be connected via RF modules and the internet. This could further innovation with “out-of-the-home” connectivity, in an increasingly connected and wireless technology environment for consumers.

Apple is suggesting the use of tiny RF modules scattered all around us communicating with eachother and the internet at the same time. Both short range (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) and long range (GSM, EDGE) devices would be equipped, and are described in the filing. Additionally, just short range devices would also be able to exploit a connection emitted by a device using an RF module, and then connect to the internet via that device’s connection.


Systems and methods are provided for interfacing wireless communications between two devices such that a device devoid of a relatively long-range communications protocol can access that protocol. This may be accomplished by providing a host device having relatively short-range communications circuitry integrated therein, which circuitry may be operative to communicate with relatively short-range communications circuitry of a multi-protocol or long-range communications device that also includes relatively long-range communications circuitry.
