The iPhone 8 is either going to have longer battery life, or more power hungry components. Either way, the battery in Apple’s rumored OLED iPhone will be bigger, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
It’s looking like Apple is moving away from plug-it-in-to-charge for the iPhone 8. Dave Hamilton and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to look at what technology Apple could use for that, and they dive into benefits and safety concerns of wire-free radio wave charging options from Energous.
Apple may include wireless charging in the iPhone 8, but the technology will most likely come from its own designs, and not Energous. Instead of the near field technology Energous has been working on, Apple looks to be going with the same type of inductive charging it’s currently using with the Apple Watch.
