Apple may be exploring to introduce two-way charging or reverse charging on future MacBook models. 

The U.S Patent and Trademark Office granted Apple two patents for two-way charging on a MacBook. Patent images show how several inductive charging coils can be placed on the chassis or lid cover of a MacBook to support wireless charging of multiple devices at the same time. There is a catch though; the MacBook has to be charged via a power cord in order for it to wirelessly charge other Apple devices. 

Huawei and Samsung have already introduced two-way charging on their smartphones, which can be used to charge other Qi-certified devices.
