There have been a number of rumors on the next iPhone that might be revealed at the next Apple Event. These rumors include removal of a 3.5mm jack, OLED display, and much more. Today, one more report surfaces on the internet, and it comes from BGR. According to the report, Apple has partnered with Energous for the chip that would support wireless charging.
Wattup is the product that was revealed by Energous at CES 2016. This little powerhouse can charge any device with Energous receiver chip within a radius of 15-feet. It is certainly amusing to see that your iPhone can charge while you are watching Apple TV, or playing a game on your iPad. You’ll not even need to place your iPhone on any third-party wireless chargers.
iPhone 7 to Feature Wireless Charging: Report
Yes, the wireless chargers that are available currently, requires you to place the iPhone on the dock or station to charge it wirelessly.
These wireless chargers do not facilitate roaming functionality. If the report turns out to be true, it would be surely a welcoming feature by the audience.
As always, there isn’t any word from Apple in this regard. But we have tried to figure out how this might be technology would affect user’s life. Just like your iPhone connects to a saved Wi-Fi, the very same way it will automatically start charging as soon as it is in the range of wireless charger.
If the chip is surely to be launched, then we might need to order a few charging hubs from Apple as well. One for the living room, one for the bedroom, one for the office, and so on. Apple will be happy with sales, users will be happy with the new technology, in short; it’s a win-win situation for all.
I might need to poke you, get back to reality! As everything is a ‘might be’ thing here. The surprise can be reveal only by Apple and for that, we will need to wait for the next Apple Event.
