IPhones That Charge Over Wi-Fi? Apple Is Working On It
Apr 28 2017
Earlier, reports suggested the iPhone 8 could sport the touch ID sensor mounted on the rear panel to make space for the enlarged display to fit in the almost bezel-less built. As long as the iPhone 7 successor lives up to the publicity, adding that there are patrons who are wishing to obtain one on their hands, they might be obliged to wait until the first quarter of 2018. Also, interestingly there is no cut out for fingerprint scanner at the back in this one which is line with the latest rumours from Geskin but contradictory to previous schematics which did show a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner compartment. Instead, Apple gives a "Detailed Description" which includes how "power may also be transferred wirelessly between devices... at these frequencies or other suitable frequencies". However, new reports that have surfaced hint that the iPhone 8 will be in short supply for the initial months and that it may not come to market until October, or even November.
The premium version of the device will reportedly land alongside upgraded versions of the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. Apple's series of patents filed just goes to show the kind of innovation that is being conjured within the company.
Everything indicates that iPhone 8 will be a major qualitative leap compared to iPhone 7. Each device contains one or more antennas coupled to wireless circuitry capable of making phase and magnitude adjustments to transmitted and received signals. OnLeaks and KK Leaks tweeted the photo only minutes apart, but Geskin was the first to share the image.
Significant camera changes are also in testing for Apple's overhauled iPhone. KGI Securities has consequently revised its estimates on the sales of the next series of iPhones including the iPhone 8, iPhone 7S Plus, and iPhone 7S downwards. Now wireless charging has been around for a while now, although many believe that Apple's solution could offer up "true" wireless charging without the use of charging mats. Our guess: Apple is trying to keep its unreleased phone more discreet-looking, as it seems unlikely that the company would forgo its own branding.
These wireless charging modules are overheating and the supplier is having a hard time finding a fix for the overheat problem. Due to the several leaks and rumors that happened before the official launch, most of the tech enthusiasts had a pretty good idea of what to expect and what Samsung was bringing to the table.
