One of the most expected features on the upcoming iPhone 8, is the support for wireless charging. For this reason, the smartphone will probably sport a glass body that facilities wireless charging feature.
A recent report suggested that Apple has already started manufacturing the wireless charger in compliance with Qi standards. So it is safe to say that we will see the wireless charging feature on the iPhone 8. However, we have come across a report on The Next Web, which has something negative to say about the iPhone 8's wireless charging feature.
According to the report, the wireless charging feature on the iPhone 8 will not be as fast as you would want it to be. So if users want to quickly charge the device, they would have to rely on the wired charger.
A separate report by the Japanese publication MacOtakara claims that the Apple flagship would come with 1.2 standard Qi wireless charging support developed by Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). It further reveals, the iPhone 8 would offer support for 7.5W (5V/1.5A) wireless charging.
This hints that Apple may not use the 15W fast charging that also belongs to 1.2 standard.
Other than that, the publication also claims that the Cupertino-giant could lock the wireless charging using its MFi chip. This suggests that the wireless charging Qi pad from other providers will not be compatible with the iPhone 8.
As we already know, Apple is expected to launch three smartphones this year. So besides the iPhone 8, we might see the wireless charging support on iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus as well.
