With Samsung and Huawei both having flagship devices that can wirelessly charge other devices, it looks like Apple may be giving the same ability to the upcoming iPhone. According to the Japanese Apple news site, the feature might be able to support Apple Watch and the newly announced AirPods Wireless Charging Case.
On a related note, the report also states that the iPhone 11 will come with a new charging cable. That said, it also pointed out that Apple will still maintain the Lightning connector, instead of moving on the USB Type-C as per iPad Pro.
That said, the upcoming iPhone may also come with an 18W power adapter which should have faster charging speed as compared to the existing 5W charger. However, all of the mentioned feature above should be taken with a pinch of salt though, as many of these predictions are made based on supplier sources to Macotakara.
Nevertheless, we still hope that the next generation iPhone will move on to the more universal USB Type-C connectors rather than retain its restrictive Lightning connector.
