Rumour: all 2017 iPhone models to feature wireless charging

Benjamin Mayo, 9to5Mac:

KGI reiterates what the firm has said before, in that Apple will debut three new iPhones in 2017: one major redesign (colloquially dubbed ‘iPhone 8’) and two iterative updates to the existing 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus… The report says that wireless charging will feature on all models, making the ‘less-exciting’ devices still very compelling for consumers.

This one gets rumoured every year, but this time I’m more convinced it could be true. As Apple makes each new iPhone more water resistant, wireless charging represents another step in that direction. The Lightning port is the last remaining opening on the body of the iPhone; wireless charging could eventually lead to the removal of that port too.
