Report: Apple iPhone 8 to feature optional accessory for wireless charging
The report also adds that Apple will no longer bundle a Lightning to 3.5mm cable with the iPhone. Apple included such a cable with the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus after it removed the 3.5mm earphone jack from its 2016 models.
According to Mac Otakara, the 2017 iPhone 8 will be just 5-inches, which could be a typo. Most expect the special 10th anniversary edition of the handset to weigh in at 5.8-inches. That is what KGI's Kuo is looking for, and he has one of the best records among analysts who cover the company. The Apple iPhone 8 (also rumored to be called iPhone X) is expected to carry an OLED panel with edge-to-edge glass, and Touch ID will be embedded under the screen. With speculation calling for a price slightly north of $1,000, the Apple iPhone 8 still could be among the most coveted phones of 2017.
Last month we told you that a company called Lite-On Semiconductor was manufacturing the internal components of the wireless charger. Also last month, the early reports claimed that the iPhone 8 will be able to wirelessly charge from as far away as 15-feet from the power source.
