New iPhones May Support Reverse Wireless Charging

Reverse wireless charging is the new craze in the market, with Samsung introducing in its 2019 Galaxy S10 phones. Now, new sources claim that Apple is planning to go the same route with the new iPhones. If this really happens, a single iPhone could charge all known Apple devices in the market right now and possibly non-Apple smartphones too.

The information came through a Japanese Blog Site named “Mac Otakara” which mentioned that Apple will launch the new iPhones this year with the reverse charging feature. As seen on the new Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy S10 can charge other smartphones by placing the back side over other smartphones and wireless devices.

Apple introduced the wireless charging recently in AirPods 2, where you can charge the case of these earbuds without any kind of wired connection. So, it could be possible that the new iPhones will be able to wirelessly charge the AirPods 2 and make the user experience more friendly and convenient in the long run.

Digit reported:

Macotakara claimed that the next iPhone, which could be called the iPhone XI, will feature a reverse wireless feature called PowerShare. This feature allows a smartphone to wirelessly charge other devices that support the wireless charging tech. Currently, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and recently-launched Galaxy S10 series of phones have this technology.

The next iPhone may also have considerably bigger batteries than the current generation of iPhones to share juice with an Apple Watch and/or AirPods case. In fact, famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had already predicted the inclusion of the feature in this year’s iPhone lineup.
