Apple’s plans to bring reverse wireless charging to its iPhone lineup could soon become a reality, according to a new report by 9to5Mac. The technology giant is said to be working on “advanced bilateral wireless charging technology” for a future iPhone, which could allow users to charge their AirPods, Apple Watch, and other compatible devices from the back of their iPhone.
Sources close to Apple have revealed that the company had originally intended to launch the technology with the iPhone 14 series in 2022, but development issues resulted in its removal at the last minute. The report states that Apple is developing a “wireless power out” firmware, which will act as the backbone for the reverse wireless charging feature.
Furthermore, the company is said to be designing a “special user interface” for the bilateral wireless charging, similar to the one used for MagSafe. However, it’s not yet known when this new feature will become available, as the report did not speculate on a launch date.
