Wireless charging, one of the long-awaited addition to Apple products feature, is finally happening and of course, everyone is excited. Well, talking about wireless charging, it is a feature that is not really new in these past few years. Wireless charging has been around for years already, however, it is only now that iPhone will finally have it.
If you are an iPhone user, you’ll probably want to have wireless charging happening on your phone. With the release of iPhone 8 and iPhone X, that dream feature will come to reality. Apple will be eventually releasing its own wireless charger called AirPower but it will be available anytime next year. The AirPower is expected to be able to charge simultaneously an iPhone, Apple Watch Series 3 and Airpods. Ordinary chargers can only power up one device at a time but this one can do times three–and this is totally neat!
Good thing is that Apple uses Qi, a wireless charging standard that’s been adopted by many companies in the industry for wireless charging features. So for the meantime, when Apple is busy perfecting the new AirPower charger, you’ll need to have a good functioning wireless charger that works on the new iPhones. With this charging option being common these days, there are tons of wireless charging options available in the market that’s actually good for the new iPhone.
While iPhones getting charged wireless excites you, wait until iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X’s quicker charge rate. With the new release of Apples iPhone 8 and iPhone X, it is said that these new iPhones are the first phones released by Apple that will support a quicker charge rate especially of course with chargers that have higher capacity. Wondering if you can replenish 50 percent of battery life back with just 30 minutes of charging.
This charging option will work with any USB charger that supports higher wattage output however, it is always worth to make sure that the charger you will use has a good reputation before using it for your device. Using Apple’s 29-watt USB-C charger and a USB-C to Lighting cable will help your device charge much faster. Another option is to use a 61 or 87-watt charger, the one that comes with the 13 or 5-inch MacBook Pro.
iPhone supporting faster charge abilities, I can tell, is really something to look out for. It is great to see it finally coming to iPhone even if you have to purchase some extra accessories to make it happen. So while waiting for AirPower to materialize, we might have to use the other Apple accessories for this purpose.
Having said that, this eventually means that having this feature now on iPhone 8 and iPhone X is a little expensive since it does not include any of the needed accessories in the box to support such charging option. However, if you are will make the investment, fast charging is definitely a great addition to the features of iPhone.
