An exciting new coded magnetic fastening component design from Apple has surfaced in Canada's Industrial Designs Database this morning. The database states that it was publically published on March 22, 2012. The new design is listed under classifications that cover such consumer products as a remote control, telecommunications housings and more. A portion of the design resembles Apple's January patent figure for a future MacBook Pro docking station with inductive charging capabilities. While we can't confirm which of the products this component is headed for today, we can certainly state that it's for a product beyond the iPad Smart Cover. Apple's latest revelation is most interesting indeed.
