Posted Jan 5, 2012

Apple has filed three new patent applications that hint that the company is planning to add Thunderbolt connectivity in future iOS devices.  Thunderbolt was developed by Intel and brought to market with the help of Apple.  When Thunderbolt is integrated into Apple iOS devices, the iPod, iPhones, and iPads will allow faster data transfers and recharging.
