Apple joins the Wireless Power Consortium
This is the biggest evidence yet that the next iPhone will finally have wireless charging.
Apple has joined the Wireless Power Consortium, an industry group that develops and oversees the Qi wireless charging standard. Qi wireless charging is already being used by multiple manufacturers for years now on their mobile devices.
This move by Apple indicated that the Cupertino-giant will bring Qi to their devices, and when it’s best to introduce it to their consumers? During the launch of the iPhone 8. Well, that’s what rumors have been saying. The company could also incorporate the standard to the Apple Watch’s charging feature.
The iPhone 8 or the 10th anniversary iPhone is still months away and let’s see where this association is heading.
