Apple is among the biggest names when it comes to the world of technology. The iPhone is perhaps the biggest, path-breaking product they have created in their 40+ years of existence. Every year, the iPhone gets some sort of an improvement or innovation that excites the users! This year, with the iPhone 8 coming out, Apple is gearing up for a major change – wireless charging.
Wireless charging has been something that Apple’s competitors have had around for quite a while now. Every year there are speculations that Apple too, would introduce these features, but every year, we are left disappointed. However, with the iPhone 8, it is almost certain that wireless charging is about to finally arrive. Reports from Tech Times indicate that Apple is working with Broadcom to develop wireless charging technologies for their upcoming iPhone. Ming Chi-Kuo, a popular Apple analyst has also commented that 2017 will be the year wireless charging debuts on the iPhone devices. The deal between Apple and Broadcom too, is expected to be quite big, almost worth $600 Million, if industry insiders are to be believed.
