Apple acquires wireless charging company PowerbyProxi

Apple has acquired wireless charging firm PowerbyProxi, leading to speculation in that company’s native New Zealand that Apple could move operations to another country, Stuff reports. Apple announced the purchase in its usual tight-lipped fashion today, confirming plans to keep the business in New Zealand despite local talk that future research and development would probably move elsewhere. The company currently employs about 55 people and holds more than 300 wireless charging patents. Apple has debuted its first wireless charging-compatible iPhones this year and has teased a wireless charging mat to come soon.
