Apple makes Thunderbolt-equipped iDevices

If you got excited about Apple's Thunderbolt Display with 10Gbps two-way data transfer with your MacBook, you might be interested in what Patently Apple has dug up – it looks like Apple may be planning to add Thunderbolt  connectivity to its iPads and iPhones. 

The patents refer to a "new type of connection" between a portable media player and a display, a computer and a display or other devices.

So it looks like you could be hooking up Thunderbolt connectors to an iPhone 5, iPad 3 and next-gen iPod Touch – meaning faster data transfer and faster battery charging. Yep, we could get on board with that.
