Why Did Apple Just File a Vaporizer Patent?

29 January 2017

We know that Apple is a technology company with design chops that are second to none. But the recent revelations by the US Patent and Trademark Office today has forced us to think over the matter.

A patent proposes that Apple may be working on its own high-tech vaporizer unit that uses high temperatures to "cause the substance to sublimate or vaporize". It's also highly possible that the company may introduce the technology as a separate device, particularly made for vaporizing. A number of possibilities enter the fore, including an air freshener, which makes sense for the most part, considering Apple's plans for a self-driving auto, although those plans went down the drain past year, so that possibility is a no-go, apparently. While it does outline the vaporizing process, the patent doesn't specify what substance the device is created to be used with, or whether it's a separate product intended for other purposes than recreational endeavors.

During the presidential campaign, he also floated the idea of registering American Muslims in a database. The new executive order would also prohibit the acceptance of Syrian refugees for at least 120 days.

The document presents several diagrams picturing conversion of vapors of a present sublimated solution or substance. 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. The plate may then rise slightly as the user draws vapor from the vaporizer, settling again after they stop. Other embodiments are also described and claimed. The company has been the tech industry for a decade now and has never disappointed its users with its products.

At first glance it might sound like a component of a modern day recreational vaporizer, either for nicotine or another substance such as marijuana, but the patent's description of the heating element actually compressing onto the substance being vaporized is quite a bit different than anything on the market.
