Evidence emerges that iPhone 8 could charge wirelessly
Looks like Apples next iPhone could be the first to include wireless charging.
Rumors have been buzzing about wireless charging from an iPhone since, before the six came out.
So, obviously we were skeptical, but this kind of proof, is hard to overlook.
Apple rumors site, 9to5Mac reported that the Cupertino Company is now listed as on of the 213 members of the wireless power consortium.
An association of tech companies and manufacturers promoting the wide market adoption of this method of charging.
Companies listed on their site includes Samsung Electronics, Qualcomm, LG, and as of this week, Apple Inc.
is listed at the top.
Previous rumors about the iPhone 8 suggested might skip wireless charging all together Until it could incorporate a form of long-range wireless charging.
But this new development suggest they're going with the simple method of inductive charging that Android and Windows devices have been using for over five years.
In fact, Apple already uses it in the Apple Watch.
Now, don't expect to get a wireless charger as a freebie in the box.
The report also states that this would be an added accessory that you would have to purchase separately along with all those audio deck adaptors.
And with the iPhone 8 reportedly costing over a thousand dollars this year, you best start saving your pennies now.
