iPhone 8 wireless charging is ‘confirmed’ by a new report
iPhone 8 wireless charging is ‘confirmed’ by a new report, Latest News is that it seems pretty clear that the flagship iPhone of 2017 i.e iPhone 8 or iPhone X, will come with support for wireless charging. We have heard rumors about this before, and today a new report from the Chinese-language Commercial Times confirms this feature.
Lite-On Semi refused to comment, as you would expect. The wireless charging rumors for the iPhone 8 have so far gone hand-in-hand with those speaking about the device having a glass back, which makes perfect sense since no one’s solved the wireless charging through metal problem yet. Other details about this year’s iPhone are more in flux, with some sources recently talking about three handsets launching in the fall – the flagship iPhone 8 (or X) with a 5.7″ or so curved AMOLED touchscreen, as well as an iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
According to cited “industry sources”, Lite-On Semi has entered Apple’s supply chain in order to provide half of the required GPP bridge rectifiers, which are needed to make wireless charging work. It is still unclear what the company is building on the other half.
