    Smartphones running out of juice isn’t a new phenomenon, and no matter just how brilliant the technological upgrades get in these phones, the battery life always seems to fall short! Now, Apple received a patent for solar energy generation systems for smartphones that could change the way iDevices in the future charge up on the go! From what we’ve made out of Apple’s plans, the company might just have photovoltaic panels on phones soaking up energy from the sun to illuminate the display! It isn’t long before we finally have a bunch of new generation Apples making use of solar energy, and this patent acquirement could indeed be Apple’s baby-steps into a cleaner and more energy-efficient smartphone industry.
