While wireless technology has been on the market for many years, the iPhone has so far been without it. With the release last Tuesday of iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus from the Californian company, it is now possible for fans of the apple to recharge their new smartphone without the need to connect it to a Lithning cable.
Only problem, wireless charging was not as fast as that presented by other direct competitors like Samsung or LG. To remedy this, Apple announced through the site The Loop that an update will be available before the end of the year to increase the speed of wireless charging.
The simple tests performed by The Loop reveal that the latest current iPhones charge as slowly (or quickly, matter of point of view) wirelessly as with a 5 W USB adapter. The update would achieve a recharge of 7.5 W or even 15 W. This is highly plausible since the two models unveiled during the September 12 keynote are equipped with the Qi standard capable of supporting up to 15 W.
Regarding the station on which the iPhone must land, it will fall back on other brands like Morphie or Belkin. With Apple’s AirPower not yet officially on the market, users may have to wait until the start of 2018.
