Apple’s product lineup may extend beyond cars and the connected home. A patent filed last year and published January 26 reveals a concept for a vaporizer.
The details are a bit hazy — that is, Apple’s (Tech30) patent only describes “a substance that is to be vaporized or sublimated into a vapor,” not what the substance might be. The patent, filed by Apple employee Tetsuya Ishikawa, outlines plans for a temperature-regulated plate inside a chamber that heats up a substance to form a vapor.,
Many people use vapes to inhale nicotine or marijuana, and they are sometimes used as a replacement for cigarettes. The FDA began regulating vaping last year, and set rules for the manufacturing and distribution of vapes and their components.
