Report Claims Users Will Soon Be Able to Wirelessly Charge iPhone Using AirPods Charging Case

Posted by · 10152 views · Translate

A new report from Nikkei claims that users will soon be able to wirelessly charge their iPhone using an AirPods charging case.

Users of iPhones will soon be able to wirelessly charge their handsets using the charging case for Apple's popular AirPods wireless earphones, according to an industry source familiar with the plan.

"The product could be available as soon as the end of this year," the source said. "However, the schedule is still subject to change."

Apple has revealed a new case for AirPods that can be charged by the coming AirPower charging mat; however, it has made no mention of the ability to wirelessly share that charge with an iPhone.

The AirPods battery is significantly smaller than that of an iPhone so its unlikely that the case would be able to provide much of a charge.

We'll let you know if anyone corroborates or discredits this rumor. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

They could mean pass through charging. You put your air pods on a wireless charger then put your iPhone on top of them.

How else? This can actually mean wireless charging on the go. Your move, company that insults Apple, its fans, products, intelligence, etc.!

But the AirPod battery is way smaller, so you can’t charge an iPhone with it.
