Apple will add to the iPhone a fast wireless charging: The speed of wireless charging in the iPhone 8 and X is a compromise. It is more convenient for you to put the phone on a small pancake with a coil than to plug into the phone cable Lightning. But this greatly reduces the charging speed, so this method is not always convenient.
At the start of sales in the iPhone 8 and X phones supported charging by 5 watts. After the release of iOS 11.2 appeared more powerful devices – up to 7.5 watts, but this is still not enough. For comparison, all new flagships from Samsung are supported as much as 15 watts, and Apple also wants to achieve such results.
The report of the China Times says that Apple wants to overcome the limitations of 7.5 watts and catch up with Samsung’s fast wireless charging. The essence of the update is that Apple will use a thick Qi transferring coil made of copper. Because of this, the case can become thicker, but the efficiency of wireless charging will increase. In addition, due to lowering the resistance, you can avoid overheating of the smartphone, even if you increase the power of charging.
China Times says that such a charge will receive at least 1 smartphone. Most likely, we are talking about the alleged iPhone X Plus with a 6.5-inch OLED-screen. If so, it’s strange that the successor to the iPhone X will remain without improved charging. But we certainly can not know this.
As for the budget option, in it, most likely, wireless charging will remain from the current generation. However, expect innovations from the Apple smartphone for $ 699 is not worth it.
Since all these rumors, especially from the Chinese, we advise you to treat them skeptically. Apple has not yet announced any announcements, so it’s better to wait until September and see what will actually happen.
