  • Analysts are super bullish on Apple after the 'powerful, lovely' iPhone X

Months of rumors leading up to Apple's iPhone 8 announcement hinted that wireless charging was coming to the Cupertino, California, company's smartphone lineup. For a company that's always quick to brag about its latest and greatest product, the omission is telling in itself. With the LED battery light on the front of the case, all you'll have to do is glance at the accessory to see if it's fully charged or not.

In the world of Android, almost all companies that advertise the fast charging in a phone or sell a phone with fast charging feature, also bundle a fast charger and relevant cable with the phone. Instead, you lay it on a charging mat or puck, which is itself plugged into an outlet. It cuts out some of the blue light emitted from the screen, helping to avoid disrupting your sleep pattern.

4. The wireless charging isn't totally wireless.

"The reserved start could be because the carriers are anticipating the need to be more aggressive with the iPhone X as we approach its pre-order date of Oct. 27", Kvaal said. Key selling points include wireless charging, bigger screens powered by cutting-edge OLED display technology, and advanced cameras that allow facial recognition and augmented reality.

Many of us have switched to all-digital music these days, but true music nuts will still have a great big music collection that won't fit on your average phone. Aside from Apple's new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, Samsung's Galaxy S8, S8+, S8 Active, Note 8 and some past generations of those devices all support wireless charging.

There appears to be some good news for MacBook owners, though.

Yes, if it is Qi certified. You should be able to use practically any Qi wireless charger to top them up.

Unfortunately, these advance charging features come at an additional price as you need to purchase Apple's in-house Lightning to USB-C cable along with a USB-C power delivery compatible wall brick to achieve the desired results. The argument has some merit but it is worth noting that charging a phone of the most critical part of using the phone daily.

No. Every device that offers wireless charging also offers a standard charging cable method. But Apple didn't mention it.

The 7.5-watt chargers would seem to confirm a rumor from August that Apple's wireless charging would be slower. Is this price tag justifiable or is it outrageous? This change means that it may become more difficult for family members to access a person's device in the case of an emergency.
