Apple is one of the biggest names in the industry. The company is selling hundreds of millions of iPhone units every year. Last year, the Cupertino company debuted the iPhone X after months of leaks and rumors. The iPhone X marks the first iPhone with an OLED curved display and Face ID.
The company is showing the world that it’s more than just the iPhone, iPad, and MacBook machines. Last year, Apple announced the wireless charging pad that allows users to quickly charge up their device. The introduction of the wireless charging pad paves the way for the adoption of wireless charging in iPhone models.
It’s been more than 8 months since Apple first unveiled its wireless charging pad. However, there is no mention of the release date of the pad. Sources claim that Apple will launch its own charging pad to the public alongside 2018 iPhone models.
According to suppliers, Apple’s wireless charging pad will see a public rollout this fall. When it comes to pricing, the pad will be priced at $150 at launch. Sources claim that Apple has been working on its charging pad since the unveiling day, and it is now ready to launch it to the public.
Apple’s wireless charging pad was previously rumored to see a public release in March alongside Apple’s new 9.7 inch iPad. However, it was nowhere to be found at launch. The device was initially priced at $199, but the $199 mark is too expensive for an accessory. In reality, Apple Pencil’s $99 price tag is met with a lot of controversy at launch.
With the release of the wireless charging pad, Apple will add support for charging accessories in this year’s iPhone models. The current iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X include support for wireless charging. Apple is expected to improve the wireless charging feature on 2018 iPhone models.
In reality, wireless charging is not something new out there as it has been part of Android phones for years. Apple is expected to announce new iPhones at its annual September event. 2018 iPhone models are rumored to come with a lot of new things at launch.
