@ Rob. The design appears to match the concept of a MacBook dock as presented in another patent that I link to in this report, Rob. In that concept patent figure, we see that the magnets are on the backside of the bar noted above. Meaning, this angle of the patent figure isn't showing us the magnetic clips. Only the outer shell is shown here.

From what I see, it's new and not associated with today's iPad Smart Cover.

Detachable MacBook Air screen as a tablet? And to magic-netically attach to a dock..
If all of that angled block is a magnet... it's one mighty magnet!
The angle of the ends of the bracket, and the angle of the magnet block itself look a bit like they fit into a housing..
