New iPhone models to feature wireless charging

10 February 2017

All three of the new iPhone models expected to be released this year will feature wireless charging, as noted in a report from KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo acquired by MacRumors.

It was previously believed that just the upcoming iPhone 8 would utilise wireless charging, but according to the report this will not be the case.

The report also states that wireless charging will cause the iPhone 8 to heat up a little, and that Apple is considering adding a new 3D Touch module with additional graphite sheet lamination to prevent the highly-anticipated device from overheating and malfunctioning.
