The next iPhone is rumored to have reverse wireless charging

The next iPhone is rumored to have reverse wireless charging


According to Japanese blog, Mac Otakara, noted Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo as well as other industry insiders, are confident that the next iPhone will offer reverse wireless charging that will let you charge up your AirPods or Apple Watch on the go. 

We've already seen reverse wireless charging in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10 series, so this rumor being true wouldn't be too surprising.

The same report also states that this year's iPhones will be getting faster wired charging via a USB-C to Lightning cable, maybe up to 18W.

Kuo has also made a number of other predictions for this year's iPhones, including a frosted glass rear for the back, an upgraded Face ID system, a triple-lens rear camera system, bigger batteries, and the retention of lightning ports (which means no USB-C).
