Need more proof that the new iPhones will have wireless charging? Here's a $50 stand

RAVPower, the maker of all things powerbank and charging, has given us one more tangential evidence that the upcoming iPhone crop will indeed feature a wireless method to pump them full of electrons. It has apparently already in production of a wireless charging stand with the Qi standard that can output no less than 10 watts of power, or double what the wired iPhone chargers provide, due to the inevitable power loss when charging through the ether.
Thus, the RAVPower chief has sent the following statement which all but confirms that the company has inside sources credible enough to result in a final retail product for charging future iPhones wirelessly:
While LG has a 15-watt wireless charger on the market, Apple is likely going to keep it safe, and provide a more standard output, which, coupled with the rumored new glass housing of the upcoming iPhones, should charge them almost as quickly as if they were connected to a cable.
Samsung's newest wireless charging convertible pad takes about two hours to fully charge a Galaxy S8, while doing the same thing by wire takes about an hour and a half, so we will be pretty curious to see whether the new iPhones can charge wirelessly with the same speed as with the regular charging cable provided in the box.

Finally with iPhone now having wireless charging, wireless charger manufacturers will release more fast QI chargers which have been lacking the last 5 years or so for Android.

Really?? I thought that zealous were espousing that the charging would be done over the air (with no charging mat). That was the implication that was given as to true wireless charging being reinvented.

Let's be real here...the only person who thought the distance charging tech was going to be a reality is Bankz. His entire rumor list he flaunted for so long, is falling apart as we get closer to new iPhone season.

No just hypocritical - All the zealots have some explaining to do but i expect they will all back pedal now as more and more is revealed to not be the revolution they thought. Now that Apple is including these features the same way I wonder if they will say the features are useless gimmicks?

Apple fans since 2010 Who is gonna buy that big phablets? Phones with bigger than 5 inch screens are hideous! Who needs water resistance? Just don't go near water! Wireless charging is a gimmick, it has wire! Who needs fast charging when our battery is so small! Amoled is a washed up trash! Metal is superior, glass backs are finger print magnets! Bigger bezels are actually better to hold and more ergonomic!
