A new report claims that the iPhone 8 could feature brand new wireless charging technology that hasn’t been seen on Android phones launched so far. The new wireless charging feature reportedly will let the upcoming iPhones get charged from a distance of about 15 feet.
There have been several reports suggesting that Apple may ditch the ‘iPhone 7s’ name for next year’s iPhone based on its naming convention and directly name it iPhone 8 considering 2017 is Apple’s tenth anniversary of launch of the original iPhone.
Apple is working with a company called Energous for the new type of truly wireless technology.
Earlier this month, Apple’s manufacturing partner Foxconn is testing wireless charging modules for the iPhone 8. Yield rate measures the number of satisfactory units in the production of a batch of components.
