A report coming from a strong source indicates that Apple’s next-gen flagship iPhone 11 will support reverse wireless charging, which means users will be able to charge their Apple Watch and AirPods cases on the new phone, without the need of a cable. The report also says that the iPhone 11 will come bundled with a new 18W USB charger that ships with the iPad Pro currently, to enable faster charging than before.
The report from Macotakara states that Apple will use the same Wireless PowerShare technology that is used in the Samsung Galaxy S10. It will allow the Apple Watch and even the AirPods case to charge on the iPhone back panel.
The report also states that the next iPhone will continue to adopt the Lightning connector, but the charging cable will be changed to the USB Type-C to Lightning cable. Furthermore, the bundled power adapter may be changed to the Apple 18W USB-C power adapter that currently ships with the iPad Pro. The report states that all of this will enable the new iPhones to charge more quickly.
