Sources from “9to5Mac” explain that Apple is actively working to integrate reverse wireless charging into future smartphones. Enough to wait for the availability of this function in the iPhone 15 Pro or Ultra in 2023. However, despite a five-year delay, the future of this technology within the Apple firm is uncertain.
Wireless charging has been a touchy subject at Apple ever since the aborted AirPower episode. However, the apple firm does have projects in this area that it wants to carry out for its iPhone. According to information from the specialized site 9to5Macthe Californian giant is actively working to offer a reverse wireless charging feature in future iPhones.
A 2018 technology
9to5Mac thus explains that, according to well-informed sources on the subject, “Apple continues to work on more advanced two-way wireless charging technology for iPhone “. We learn from these same sources that the company would have liked to integrate this option into the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max in 2022, but the finalized version was not ready enough.
Some might point out that various Android smartphones have been offering this feature for several years. We remember, for example, that the Huawei Mate 20 Pro already took advantage of this option when it was launched in the last quarter of 2018. As a reminder, reverse wireless charging allows the phone to be used as a charging base. By activating this function, all you have to do is put a box of Bluetooth headphones or a connected watch on the back of the smartphone to charge them; this obviously uses the battery of the smartphone.
Reverse wireless charging on the iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra?
9to5Macis content to explain that reverse wireless charging would come to future iPhones without mentioning which one. However, we could expect that for the iPhone 15 Pro or Ultra expected in late 2023, some five years after Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro. However, this remains highly uncertain. Internal sources of the medium explain that this integration could still be delayed or even abandoned. Despite the fact that Apple would be working on it from the iPhone 11, the manufacturer would still find problems with heat dissipation and charging speeds.
Apple would also develop dedicated, internal firmware to manage reverse wireless charging while preserving hardware integrity. In addition, a special user interface would also be in the works to show animations on the screen when the function is running.
