It’s what might be the next best thing. Apple has filed a patent for a vaporizer.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on Thursday published an Apple patent application for a new “vaporizer” technology. The patent application describes a “chamber body” that can take an unidentified substance that will then be “vaporized or sublimated into a vapor.”
The patent application, which was earlier discovered by Digital Trends, seems to be a heat-not-burn device that could possibly be used in the growing marijuana market. Apple has not made any claims or stated why it has filed the patent.
