2019 Apple iPhones will have reverse wireless charging
A lot of cutting edge innovation have been springing up between 2018 and this year and among them is the arrival of 5G phones, foldable phones, the crazy efforts puts in by manufacturer to cut bezels as much as possible, also not forgetting a more gimmicky trend – reverse wireless charging.
With this feature, the new iPhones will be able to wirelessly charge other iPhones or the new AirPods with Wireless Charging Case, as well as any other Qi compatible device.
Obviously the less gimmicky use case for this involves the new AirPods, as we assume it will be slow to charge other phones, not to mention that you probably wouldn’t want to deplete the battery of the iPhone that does the charging so rapidly.
Kuo says Compeq will supply the battery boards and STMicro will supply Apple with the two-way wireless charging controller. For this to work, the battery capacity and the battery boards for the 2019 iPhones are expected to increase in size. TheÂ iPhone XS MaxÂ successor could have a 10 to 15% bigger battery, while theÂ iPhone XSÂ successor’s could grow by 20 to 25%. As for theÂ iPhone XR successor, that should only see a gain of 0 to 5%.
