It is expected that Apple will add wireless charging to the iPhone 8 as an option for the 10th anniversary of the birth of the iPhone this year.
According to a report by Apple analyst KGI Securities Ming Chi Kuo, it is certain that Apple will add a wireless charging function to the iPhone 8. However, the customer must purchase an accessory for wireless charging separately.
The company that supplies these accessories to Apple is called Luxshare . The company is also known for providing coils for wireless chargers that come with Apple Watch.
The report also said Apple had removed the 3.5mm earphone jack from the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 plus last year and provided a "lightning-to-3.5mm adapter," but this year it is no longer available for the new iPhone.
Ming Chi Kuo expects the iPhone 8 to be available in 5-inch and 5.8-inch models. In addition, an edge-type display with a curved edge is applied to the iPhone 8, and an OLED panel is used. Fingerprint recognition is expected to be embedded at the bottom of the screen. The expected price of the iPhone 8 is over $ 1,000.
