B3MMi, 24 Nov 2016Nexus 4 had wireless charging in 2012 ;) So welcome to 2012and some new android phone still using it , so android still using 2012 technology .... nothing new
Piku, 24 Nov 2016WOW! such ignorance Samsung and Nexus series already using this tech.You've been trolled by your fellow Android fanboy. Congratulations.
Piku, 24 Nov 2016WOW! such ignorance Samsung and Nexus series already using this tech.WOW! Big deal.
Oh... wow ... That is a big surprise. 3 years late apple comes to wireless charging party as with everything else they do... 3 years late. Sure they will say - "we have reinvented charging again"... just been last in doing it.. disgusting
Mattt, 24 Nov 2016Umm, you CAN use it in every way - it just can't be held. I know because I've been using them ... moreWhich is why he said not in any meaningful way. The "techies" here may not realize it, but almost every person holds their phone in their hands when they use their phone. Can't do that and wirelessly charge. You guys are trying to dispute his point and trying so hard to ignore the most practical shortcoming of wireless charging that makes it a gimmick.
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2016Without slots it already sold off the roof.. Btw, slots not much use on iPhone anyways.This is why YoY sales are reducing?
so apple next step is to remove the charging through usb port... and would the wireless charger half the price of the phone

pramod5774, 24 Nov 2016Steve jobs would have hit tim cook in the nuts for this much copying and commercialization of ... morehe himself was the biggest copycat.
besides, if Tim Cook doesn't adopt new features....iphone will forever stay in stone-age.
more and more iOS users adopting android every year.
AJ_74, 24 Nov 2016While everyone is busy making fun of Apple for finally getting wireless charging capability in... moreUmm, you CAN use it in every way - it just can't be held. I know because I've been using them since the Lumia 920 in 2012. Any device without Qi is now a deal breaker.
ProJames, 24 Nov 2016You know what is the only real thing missing to an iPhone (except from a less restrictive OS)?... moreFirst last paragraph
"Pegatron is said to be the sole supplier for the wireless charger for the future iPhones, as Foxconn is busy making sure it can produce the AMOLED iPhone without issues. As always, take this rumor with a hefty dose of salt, especially since we're almost a year away from the unveiling of these handsets."
Now that means ONLY... ONLY this Apple charger will wirelessly charge the iPhone, you can bet the other universal chargers won't be able to
Price high... if bluetooth earpods cost $149
also metion of removing charging ports aren't these the lightning connector?
so no removal
wireless charging is optional buying a wIreless charger mandatory
Second and this is where he has gotten it wrong...
Apples will skip numbers and call it the iphone10 to mark 10 years od selling memory cards that are capable of telephony so NO iPhone7S or iPhone8 staight to iPhone10
new shape new colours same presentation
Apple will pack a few more features into the iPhone10 so it will sell reveersing the Iphone7 ignomy of being the only iphone not to outsell a predecessor
Outside of the Orchard we have seen these new fangled inventions like curved screen / memory expansion / fully functioning Bluetooth and NFC/ removable battery
inside the Orchard the have NOT.
Ghe, 24 Nov 2016Oh great! Welcome to year 2015, Apple!Nexus 4 had wireless charging in 2012 ;) So welcome to 2012
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2016Let's revisit your intelligence again, why can't you use a Bluetooth headset while wireless ch... moreDo not forget that there was an Apple patent for true wireless proximity charging a few years back.
and it will be charged only with wireless charging pad. because they going to remove the charging port as well, just like they remove the 3.5mm audio jack.
wow. that is called innovation.
and they are going to be the first in the entire universe to introduce this technology and they are doing this because they love their costumers.
Hail Apple Hail ...
