Will Apple embracing wireless charging finally make it ubiquitous?

Instead, they unveiled the Airpower mat, a wireless charging platform.

Apple didn't mention the fast charging in its launch event, but it did talk about all kinds of new charging technologies.

Aircharge, the global leader in wireless charging solutions for public venues, the office and home, has confirmed today full compatibility with the newly announced iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X models.

You do, of course, need a wire to connect the charging mat to a power source, so wireless charging still now requires you to carry a cable.

Wireless charging: What is it? While the idea is great on paper, commercial adoption hasn't yet struck a meaningful groove with the mainstream This is despite multi-generations of support for the Qi and Power Matters Alliance (PMA) standards from Samsung and LG, and the occasional dabble from other Android OEMs.

There is a third wireless charging technology that uses radio waves.

Apple has equipped their new smartphones, smart watches, and headsets with wireless charging function, and also released its own wireless charging.

To discover where your nearest Powermat Charging Spot is located, please download the Powermat app. The Solo3 sport the same Apple custom wireless chip as the AirPods, conferring numerous same benefits. The company has been a goldmine for its ecosystem, not least with the use of proprietary ports and the elimination of the headphone jack, and wireless charging represents another opportunity to sell more stuff. It charges without a physical connection.

If your phone is compatible with Qi charging, all you need to do is purchase a Qi charging pad.

If you have an Android phone, you may have Qi embedded already. Sure, you get more storage in the basic iPhone 8 for the extra $50 it costs, but you don't have the choice to spend less for less storage if you don't need all 64GB.

The iPhone 8 features a new 6-core A11 Bionic processor which is 70 per cent faster than the previous A10. Understand that it may charge more slowly than using a current wall charger.

"The X is 5.65" long, 2.79" wide and 0.30" thick. If the charger supplies 10 watts, fine.

Inductive chargers at work or in your auto are also convenient locations, especially if you're prone to forgetting to plug your phone in when you arrive at the office.

Like with most things Apple, you'll be able to buy the optional wireless charging case once it comes out - whenever that is. If you've done it correctly, the phone should start to charge when placed on a Qi charger. Apple said it envisions a world where many surfaces-from your bedside table to your car's dashboard to your desk at work-could have wireless charging docks, meaning you'll never have to worry about remembering a cable again.
