But there are competing standards, license fees and more. Besides I've tried both mainstream charging systems and found them a little too finicky. That is, you must place the thing to be charged in just the right spot. Sorry but it doesn't have that Apple "it just works' quality to it. I can see why Apple didn't adopt it.
iPhone 6s was announced, not much different to the 6 from my point view. I'm wondering guessing when will Apple make iphone wireless chargable. Does this prove wireless charging for cellphone is not worth a bit. Then why Samsung keep promoting its wireless features. Wireless charging is expected to be popular by many people for a long time. But now it's still a function not necessary at all. I've experienced wireless charging, which I think is a quite convenient help. And I don't think it's costly for every phone to build in a wireless receiver. Think of that, wireless charger is part of your desk or other furniture, and you can just place you phone on it to charge it. I believe that's a future not only for cell phone, but also many other electronic products.
