For a few years now, only Android phones have enjoyed the benefits of wireless charging. The feature is deemed to be quite convenient as one needs not fiddle with clumsy cabling in order to charge a phone. When iPhone users got wind of the technology, they too, wanted a slice of the action. Now, while experts have speculated that the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, and the tenth anniversary iPhone will have wireless charging, a CEO of a known wireless charging provider has finally confirmed the initial rumors.
According to Powermat CEO Elad Dubzinski, wireless charging will be a standard feature among all iPhones released this year. The CEO shared the sentiment in a recent news release from the company. Unfortunately, the press release did not clarify whether Powermat will be providing the wireless charging solution for Apple.
For now, it is still uncertain which company will provide the wireless charging solution to Apple. Earlier reports suggest that either Qi and Energous are on the list of possible suppliers. Furthermore, we also cannot confirm if there is truth in Dubzinski’s pronouncement as it did not come directly from Apple.
Nevertheless, since most market pundits have been speculating that at least one of the iPhones to be released this year will have wireless charging, perhaps that is enough. Whether or not Apple includes wireless charging to the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, it is still too soon to tell. Besides, at the moment, Apple is still in a bit of a turmoil based on recent reports about the company.
According to recent updates, the company is planning on pushing the production of the iPhone until much later due to supplier concerns. Apparently, Samsung is experiencing difficulties fulfilling Apple’s design requirements for the iPhone 8’s OLED display. Also, a number of Apple suppliers are still scrambling to meet production deadlines for the upcoming tenth anniversary iPhone.
As with any information regarding the upcoming iPhone models, this too should be taken with a grain of salt. For more tech updates, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
