Wireless Charging Coming to the Next iPhone?

Wireless charging has been around for a number of years on a variety of phones. In the last couple we’ve even seen mice with charging pads. While the technology has not taken a dominant foothold it has crept into different arenas.

According to MacRumors a new ‘high end’ wireless charging iPhone will be getting released in 2021. This would seem to be a gain but it should be noted this would be facilitated by removing the phones only remaining port, the lightning port. This could make the iPhone the world’s first port-less phone. Abandoning cables altogether could be beneficial but it remains to be seen how it would affect file transfers.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
