Apple has been more concerned about the security, protection of its devices than most other companies. That’s the reason why you have security checks every time you intend to do something that it generally doesn’t support.
Wireless charging has been around for some years. Though it provides great convenience, it hasn’t been able to make a huge impression due to its side effects. Even then quite a number of mobile makers have added it into some of their chosen smartphones, Apple has continued to ignore it on account of the damage that it may cause. However, what if you have decided to add wireless charging to iPhone 6/6 Plus, how will you do it?
Few things to keep in mind.
#1. Charging your iPhone with non-OEM chargers is strictly prohibited by Apple.
#2. It can damage your device.
#3. Your device will lose the warranty that Apple has given.
There are certain requirements if you want to charge your iPhone wirelessly.
- Qi Wireless Charging Receiver (Find the one that has a lightning port.)
- Qi-compatible wireless charging pad.
- Protective case (Though it is not mandatory, it is better to use it for security.)
Having got the requirements, move on with further steps.
How to Charge iPhone 6/6 Plus Wirelessly
Step #1. Set up WI-FI syncing for iTunes by plugging in your iPhone to your Mac/PC. By doing this, you won’t have to remove the QI wireless charging card for syncing. Besides, it won’t let the lighting port have any impact.
Step #2. Unplug the iPhone from Mac/PC. Plugin the lightning connector of the Qi wireless charging card to your phone.
Step #3. When the card gets connected, stick it to the back of your iPhone making sure the rings on the card are exposed.
Step #4. Make sure that the card is securely placed. You can use a protective case to get it done quite easily.
Step #5. Now, you need to pop in the charging pad into a power source
Step #6. Put the iPhone on the pad.
That’s it! Your iPhone will start charging.
Wireless charging doesn’t involve any permanent modification. Therefore, you can remove it after charging or use it only when you want to power up your device.
