iPhone 8 rendering made by reflecting various rumors (source=YouTube)
Apple’s iPhone 8, which is expected to be released next month, is likely to be released with a wireless charging function, but it seems that the charging pad must be purchased separately.
Apple blogger John Gruber recently argued that the iPhone 8’s inductive wireless charging device will be sold separately, and that the release may be delayed in order to appear alongside the operating system iOS 11.1.
A British media outlet also reported that the wireless charging pad is sold separately and supports iPhone 8, but there is a possibility that it will also support iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, which will be released together.
The iPhone 8 is the first iPhone series manufactured by Apple to feature wireless charging, and earlier this year, Robert Huang, CEO of Apple’s supplier Wistron, said, “New features such as waterproofing and wireless charging require different testing steps in the manufacturing process. , waterproofing will somewhat change the iPhone assembly process.”
On the other hand, according to the latest rendering video of ‘iPhone 8’ produced based on rumors by TECHCONFIGURATIONS, which specializes in rendering concept for smartphones, the iPhone 8 is equipped with an OLED panel and the overall size is 5.8 inches. Due to the space called the ‘functional area’ at the bottom, the actual usable screen area is expected to reach 5.1 inches.
The front camera and 3D sensor are mounted on the top, and information such as Wi-Fi signal level and remaining battery can be checked left and right. On the back, glass is used instead of aluminum for wireless charging.
Nine2FiveMac, an American information technology (IT) media, reported that a printed circuit board (PCB) for a wireless charger for iPhone was leaked from a factory in China, and it is certain that the wireless charging function of the iPhone series will become a reality.
