Apple might bring Wireless Charging Technology to iPhones Next Year



iPhone7 Wireless Charging

There have been reports that Apple is working on wireless charging technology and VentureBeat has given us more evidence of the same. The company has been working on this with the help of RF- based charging tech Energous. Earlier it was reported that Apple has relation with Energous secretly, and the company has confirmed that it has been working with one of the top five consumer electronics companies.

Now it is more or less confirmed with the reports that we got, and SEC filing from Energous specifically references Apple compliance testing. “We expect that our products and/or the reference designs will undergo UL/CE as well as FCC Part 15, FCC Part 18, SAR, California Energy Star and Apple compliance testing”.

We know that for wireless charging the device needs to be rested on the charging mat, but Energous WattUp technology will be charging the device which is 15 feet away by transmitting the charge using a transmitter while it will be received with the help of a receiver.

WattUp RF-based charging can be integrated to provide wire-free charging to a wide variety of electronic devices such as cell phones, tablets, wearables, cameras, wireless keyboards and mice, headsets, sensors, LED lights, remote controls and toys… A Radio Frequency (RF) system, similar to a Wi-Fi system, delivers safe wire-free charging energy at a distance of up to approximately 15ft from a transmitter to a receiver device, such as a mobile phone, and maintains charging while the receiver is in motion. Up to 12 receiver devices can be managed by the system simultaneously, depending on system specifications.

Many might have expected the wireless charging feature with the iPhone 7 line of device, but that wasn’t the case. We can expect this feature to be pushed in with the next year iPhone and bring the technology of charging the device even after being away from the charging mat. Those who do not know about Energous, it is the developer of Wattup- a wire-free charging technology that will be licensed to companies to embed within consumer products. The SEC filing statement from 2014 blankets any future anticipated testing and is not indicative of specific partners.
