Although Apple launched the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus more than a month ago, the company has already been put to work to decide what features will be included in their 2017 model, the iPhone 8.
A new report from Nikkei says that Foxconn is currently in the process of producing wireless chargers that would go along with the launch of Apple’s next device.
The report explains that the module being produced by Foxconn is integrated within the iPhone, but is not sure if all models next year include this feature, or if you will only be destined for greater range devices.
In the end, as the inclusion of this feature it depends on the performance that Foxconn is able to achieve. Which it means that if this technology is to successfully include, Foxconn will have to be able to bring the rate of production of a company like Apple sales.
This year we learned thanks to reports that Apple is producing a long-range wireless charger for devices with iOS. At the time, Apple said they were working with a handful of partners in both the US and Asia to create this technology, which would allow iPhone loaded from much farther away than allow methods we know today.
It is not the first time the wireless charging capacity has been rumored for the 2017 iPhone. KGI analysts reported the inclusion of this technology a while back this year.
Another of the features expected in the iPhone 8 is the long-awaited OLED screen, which might come included in the iPhone 8 Plus. In addition, we have also heard of a variant of 5 inches, and designed entirely in glass, almost nonexistent bezels and lack the Home button, and especially smaller size relative to the screen.
