Last month, Apple has made a bunch of hardware and software announcements including the all-new iPads and second-gen Apple AirPods. Almost two years after its announcement, the company has finally canceled the AirPower wireless charging mat. As of now, there is no Apple-branded wireless charger to charge the all-new AirPods with the wireless charging case. Last year, Huawei Mate 20 became the first ever smartphone to support reverse wireless charging.
Even the newly launched Galaxy S10 smartphones to also come with reverse wireless charging support. According to the Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the company will be introducing the two-way wireless charging support with the upcoming iPhones which will be unveiled in September. With the reverse wireless charging, the 2019 iPhones can wirelessly charge the new AirPods on the go.
Though the charging speed will be slower than the conventional wireless charger, the reverse wireless charging smartphone is one convenient option when in need of a power source. Also, the 2019 iPhones will launch with larger battery capacities than their predecessors. The company will be launching 2019 iPhones in 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.5-inch screen sizes. As of now, there is no information about the naming of these upcoming iPhones.
While the 5.8-inch iPhone is said to come with a 20% to 25% bigger battery, the larger 6.5-inch iPhone will see a 10% to 15% bump in the battery capacity. Coming to the 2019 iPhone XR variant, the increase in battery capacity will be very negligible. The current-gen iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max come with 2,658mAh and 3,174 mAh battery capacities. Both these iPhones support fast charging and Qi wireless charging. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
