Apple to add Two-Way Wireless Charging to 2019 iPhone Models
Apple seems not to be slowing down in adding new features to its products every year. Joining its rival, Samsung in its latest phones feature, a variety of bleeding-edge upgrades, including 5G connectivity, quad rear cameras, Infinity-O displays, and two-way wireless charging, Apple will no doubt bring some of these features to its next flagship phones as confirmed by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
According to Kuo, Apple will bring two-way wireless charging (also known as bilateral or reverse charging) to its next iPhone models, expected to launch this fall. Two-way wireless charging will let the iPhone charge other devices, such as the new AirPods wireless charging case, and all three models are said to have this ability.
According to him
Also, Kuo says that Apple will increase the size of the battery in each new iPhone model to accommodate two-way charging. The battery in the 5.8-inch iPhone (the follow-up to the iPhone XS) will apparently receive a 20-25% bump, while the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max sequel will have a 10-15% increase in battery capacity. Meanwhile, the 6.1-inch model is said to only be receiving an 0.5% enlargement.
