All 2018 iPhones to Support Wireless Charging, AirPower Will be Available this Fall for $150
According to Chongdiantou, who learned from the supply chain that, Apple's three new iPhones are expected to fully support wireless charging, including iPhone XS, iPhone (2018), and iPhone XS Plus. The site also leaks that Apple hopes to launch AirPower this fall for $150.
In 2017, Apple released three iPhones that support wireless charging, iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X, which brings the feature to the iPhone for the first time. With the specified wireless charger, it can deliver up to 7.5W wireless fast charging. Of course, it won't make any sense if this year's models do not come with wireless charging.
The website also leaks Apple's AirPower wireless charging mat production progress update:
1. The charging mat has 22 coils built in;
2. Apple redefines (customizes) the wireless charging master chip;
3. Each coil is tiled and does not overlap each other;
4. Each coil is very small, so small that the chip can be precisely controlled to each coil switch;
5. Each coil can be wirelessly charged to the Apple Watch alone;
6. Apple engineers hope to be perfect enough, currently debugging;
7. Once again lead the wireless charging development direction.
AirPower was announced alongside the iPhone X event in September last year. It was once said that the product will be released in 2018, but after it faces heating issues, this fall will be an excellent time to launch the charging mat, and industry insiders speculate that it will be priced around 1,000 yuan, which is approximately $150.
