Apple’s Game-Changing iPhone 7 Wireless Charger

Recently we have seen our fair share of cynical analyst claims that Apple has reached its peak interest in exploring new and innovative mobile technologies. However, recent rumors suggest that Apple's desire to explore unique and enticing technologies remains as vigorous as ever. And why wouldn't they? Considering that the iPhone still accounts for the lion's share of Apple's quarterly revenue, it shouldn't come as any shock that a great deal of Apple's research and development has a decidedly iPhone-oriented approach.

Earlier this month, Bloomberg published an interesting article suggesting that Apple is working with partners to develop an entirely new wireless charging technology that may wind up in a new iPhone model as early as next year.

Granted, wireless charging isn't a new concept, but the report notes that Apple's wireless charging system will be a bit more elaborate and efficient as its implementation may establish the capability to charge devices at greater distances.

"Apple is exploring cutting-edge technologies that would allow iPhones and iPads to be powered from further away than the charging mats used with current smartphones," the report reads. "The iPhone maker is looking to overcome technical barriers including loss of power over distance with a decision on implementing the technology still being assessed…"

The question on everyone's mind is to exactly what degree does 'long-range' distance mean? In the past, Apple has published patent filings listing wireless charging technology capable of transferring power up to a distance of about 3 feet. In theory,we could charge our phones wirelessly while walking around the room.

Bloomberg reports that this rumored technology may see the light of day "as soon as next year." So it appears that we may have to wait until the iPhone 7s or iPhone 8 before Apple gets into the iPhone wireless charging game. As someone who is constantly forgetting to "plug in" to recharge this would be a welcomed addition to my iPhone. So come on Apple, the sooner, the better!

Anyone else out there excited about the possibility to enjoy wireless mobile charging? We'd love to hear your thoughts below.
