Apple already has a smart battery case for iPhone, which allows you to charge your smartphone. However, you must attach the phone to the accessory and connect it to the Lightning socket. Now, it seems that Apple is preparing to launch a wireless charging case for the iPhone.
Apple is working on a two-way wireless charging case for the iPhone
Now, Apple has patented a similar case that can do the same job, but does it wirelessly. That is, inside the cover, there will be no connector to which you will need to attach an iPhone to charge.
The patent The description also shows that the case is equipped with two coils located on opposite sides of the battery. This is applied so that with the help of the case it is possible to charge other smartphones that are connected to the external panel.
Finally, this case will also have the function of wireless charging of the built-in battery using the appropriate chargers and wireless portable batteries.
This patent shows that the rumors related to future iPhone smartphones without any connection are not unfounded. Earlier, authoritative analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) said that Apple will release such an iPhone in 2021.
Apple will make the iPhone completely wireless instead of adopting USB-C
Rumors and leaks about the next generation iPhone continue to appear. Following the big leak that revealed the supposed design of the iPhone 12 Pro Max this week, we now have new information.
Technology analyst Jon Prosser tweeted that Apple would not introduce an iPhone with USB-C in the coming years and instead, the company was aiming for a completely wireless future. This reinforces the reputation that emerged last year for an iPhone without a laptop.
If this speculation came true, we do not know if Apple will release the upcoming iPhone 12 without ports. Or if it arrives with a lightning port and the iPhone without port will be delayed until 2021.
It is worth noting that earlier this year, the European Parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of a common charger between manufacturers. This urges the European Commission to adopt new rules by July, so that buyers do not necessarily get a new charger with each new smartphone.
The company is struggling to keep the Lightning cable to charge the iPhone. Apple opposes the European Union, which demands the introduction of a standard charger to reduce e-waste. Most current smartphones use a USB-C port, while older ones use micro-USB ports. Most recent Samsung Galaxy smartphones, for example, charge via a USB-C port.
Apple is the big exception and has always produced phones and devices that only work with their own chargers. The team introduced Lightning technology in 2012. In a shocking update, they forced regular iPhone and iPad customers to buy new cables and new compatible accessories. At the time, the more sophisticated port design gave Apple more freedom to design its devices.
However, Apple’s iPad Pro has abandoned Lightning for USB-C. In addition, voices are rising to criticize the inconsistency of Apple’s hardware ecosystem, which is frustrating for customers.
