A little late for the party, but with 2019 iPhones, Apple may introduce two-way wireless charging. Or at least that’s what Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said in his latest reports.
Apple Insider, who claims to have seen Kuo’s report, reveals that The 2019 iPhones could charge other devices wirelessly. like the new AirPods. Basically, you will be able to charge any Qi-based device with your iPhone, as it will function as a wireless charger.
MacRumors also quotes from Kuo’s report, which read: “We hope that the new iPhone 2H19 models will support two-way wireless charging. Although the iPhone is not the first high-end smartphone equipped with two-way wireless charging, this new feature could make it more convenient for users to charge the new AirPods and create a better integrated user experience for iPhone and AirPods. “
But can you imagine that your iPhones now support bilateral charging? Considering, do the phones have almost decent battery life?
For exactly that reason, or the other way around, the 2019 iPhones will be able to support two-way wireless charging due to the larger batteries that are anticipated. The iPhone XS successor will reportedly feature a 20 to 25 percent increase in battery size, while the iPhone XS Max successor will likely see a 10 to 15 percent larger battery.
The report also suggests that the two iPhones will feature a slim OLED screen, which will also allow for additional room for the battery without increasing the overall thickness of the phone.
In addition to the two models, Kuo believes that there will also be a 6.1-inch model, which will likely be the update for the iPhone XR. Apparently this model will continue with the LCD screen and get a small battery boost of 5 percent or even less.
In addition, it maintains that all three models of the next iPhones will retain a Lightning connector instead of adopting USB-C. Apple’s TrueDepth camera and an associated screen notch are also expected to be retained.
However, he says, that TrueDepth may see an upgrade with a ‘higher power flood illuminator’ for more efficient face ID recognition.
Kuo also mentions that the iPhone XR successor could be upgraded to 4GB of RAM, compared to the current 3GB of RAM.
