Apple patents a vape that can contain solid substances

Apple patents a vape that can contain solid substances

However, the patent application does not mention anything about what substance the device is created to be used with, The Verge reported on Saturday. The mentioned vaporizing technology might as well generate more revenues for Apple in the future! iVape, it is! Apple is the most valuable company in the world for a reason and they continue to invest and develop more products which should go a long way in helping them to maintain their position.

Apple's patent describes a "substance that is to be vaporized or sublimated into a vapor" but it doesn't detail what exactly the substance might be. The application doesn't cite a human end user at all, frankly.

Would you use an Apple vape?

Vapor is used increasingly by people to breathe in nicotine or marijuana, and is sometimes used as an alternative to the cigarettes. It might also be a way for Apple to make all Apple stores smell the same, though that notion is believed to be far fetched. Perhaps most important to consider is the fact that Apple merely filed for a patent and if history is any indication, Apple doesn't follow through on what it files.

Whether the patent points to a fancy, Apple-stamped e-cigarette, or an olfactory device of sorts is hard to say.

Environmentalists are 'out of control': Trump to auto execs
Mr Marchionne told reporters after the meeting that the president did not give them specifics on what regulations he would cut. Also on Tuesday, Toyota said it would add 400 jobs and invest $600m in an in plant, aiming to boost production there by 10%.

It's mostly guesswork at this time, but Apple could take advantage of interactive holograms using vapor, which thanks to technology, is something that's entirely possible.

Since we know that Apple is working on auto technology, this could be part of that, which is the best explanation for this.

The document also indicates that the unit could be used for both a "solid precursor" and a "liquid chemical", suggesting Apple could market if for marijuana use.

Is it possible that Apple wants to get in on the vape game, or at least hold a few related patents?
