After a successful launch of iPhone 7, new reports claim that there would be no iPhone 7s and the company would launch iPhone 8 instead. Next year being Apple’s tenth anniversary of the launch of the original iPhone. Reports say that iPhone 8 could feature brand new wireless charging technology that hasn’t been seen on Android phones launched so far.
The new wireless charging feature reportedly will let the upcoming iPhones get charged from a distance of about 15 feet which means that users won’t need to place the iPhone on a wireless charging plate like we’ve seen with wireless charging technology so far. Apple may use wireless charging tech developed by Energous that could let the iPhone 8 charged from across the room. The report claims that a small chip on the iPhone will let the device wirelessly connect to a base station and also charge from a distance of up to 15 feet.
This wireless charging sounds amazing but nothing can be confirmed till Apple launches iPhone 8 next year.
