New iPhone 8 May Require Separately Purchased Accessory for Wireless Charging

Posted February 11, 2017 at 8:37pm by iClarified · 13519 views
The new iPhone 8 will allegedly require a separately purchased accessory for wireless charging, according to a Macotakara report. The wireless charging equipment is purportedly being made by Luxshare.

Although it can support wireless charging, the same equipment for wireless charging as the Galaxy, which can support wireless charging, is not included in the package, and LUXSHARE-ICT is a separately manufactured accessory.

As Luxshare is said to provide the wireless charger modules for the Apple Watch, this appears to indicate that Apple is going with an inductive wireless charging module for the iPhone 8; rather than long range wireless charging.

Macotakara also reports that Apple will no longer include a headphone jack adapter with the new iPhone, something that could upset users who have 3.5mm headphones they want to use with their phone.

Apple isn't expected to unveil the new iPhone 8 until September; however, it's already been suggested that the new phone will carry a price tag over of over $1000. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

I would not pay over 1000.00 for the phone especially if there is no headphone jack.

If apple is so interested in removing things, how about showing that same ingenuity on removing the top and bottom bessels. I love apple, but I think we need to start focusing on those awful bessels.

This is a RUMOR, it's best to wait till the real thing shows up. Not surprised if Apple does this but MUCH better than Samsung for optional wireless charging, that is. BTW I'm ok with the 3.5mm headphone jack gone cuz I've never touched my EarPods, wanna keep my hearing for a long time.

Wtf is Tim Cook doing? Apple will soon say, you need to buy your own battery. We will install it for you with purchase. And Apple fanboys will still buy it.

Samsung don't provide a wireless charger either. Where's the problem? Fingers crossed it's Qi compatible.

I think these changes are stupid, Apple needs to pull their head out of it.
