Apple may add reverse wireless charging feature in its 2019 iPhones
With the emerging trend of reverse wireless charging in the mobile world, rumors are circulating that Apple may include reverse wireless charging feature in its upcoming 2019 iPhone models. According to a report from the famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the Cupertino giant is going to add reverse charging tech in its upcoming models which are due to launch in this fall.
Recently, Huawei and Samsung added this tech to their new flagship smartphones including Huawei Mate 20 Pro, P30 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy S10. It seems now Apple is also looking to add this technology to their new models as well.
This feature will help the upcoming iPhones to wirelessly charge other iPhones, AirPods with the help of a wireless charging case. The new tech will be based on the Qi wireless charging technology. The report also claims that with this new tech the Apple company will increase the battery sizes of their models as well.
The report says that the iPhone XS-sized model will be integrated with a 20 to 25% increase in the battery size. The iPhone XS Max model will receive a 10 to 15 % while the iPhone XR model will get a 5% battery boost.
Kuo says that Compeq company will supply the company with battery boards and St micro will provide two-way wireless charging controller to the Apple company.
Having a wireless charging feature in your mobile phone with the ability to even charge your accessories including AirPods or an Apple Watch will be a helpful addition to the company’s gadgets. This feature will also eliminate the need to carry multiple power cables to charge your devices.
The company has not officially claimed about the edition of reverse wireless charging feature in their upcoming iPhone models, so take all the above said with a pinch of salt, as the story was published on global media outlets on 1st of April.
