Alleged Apple wireless charging pads appear in bare-naked photo shoot

It has been rumored for a while now that Apple's iPhone 7s and iPhone 8 will have wireless charging. In fact, the 7s and 7s Plus are expected to be thicker than the current duo of Apple flagships due to the glass back they will have — you can't have inductive charging if the phone's back is bare metal. Now, we get a look at the charging pads during the manufacturing process.

Update: A photo of an alleged battery sticker for the future iPhones has also popped up. It appears to have a cutout for the wireless charging coil inside the phone



Well... allegedly. We really can't know what we're looking at, though the leakster insists they are Apple wireless chargers. The images don't show us what the finished product will look like, but we get a really nice gander at the pads' insides.

It's unknown whether the wireless charging pad will come in-the-box with your new iPhone purchase, or if it'd be sold separately. And, at this point, we dare not speculate.
