probable availability with iPhone 14

iPhone 14 concept

After telling us a little more about the future colors of the iPhone 14 collection which should arrive this fall, the Twitter account @Jioriku also mentioned the case of reverse charging. This explains that the range will always be protected by a glass Gorilla Glass Victuscompatible with power transfer between smartphones.

However, this functionality might not be deployed directly. iPhone 14s should ship with iOS 16 when they debut. But our source of the day rather indicates that the reverse recharge will wait a little longer, perhaps to arrive with iOS 16.5 afterwards. Announcements for iPads also seem staggered in October.

For which devices?

Unfortunately, for the moment it is impossible to know which other Apple products can be recharged in this way. The principle here consists of transforming the back of the iPhone into a wireless charging mat, similar to the concept of AirPower which ultimately never saw the light of day. Then just drop an AirPods case or an Apple Watch on this surface and the transfer of electricity begins in order to offer them a little more endurance by pumping the battery of the iPhone.

Apple being regularly stingy in this area, it is also to be expected that phones and watches from competing brands are potentially not compatible. Enough to inspire third-party accessory manufacturers looking for alternatives, which we hope to see one day see MFi certified. This label, granted by Apple to its most prestigious partners, guarantees that equipment can work with its iPhones without danger.

Some technical issues

At the same time, Apple is also preparing for some changes for connectivity MagSafe installed on the back of iPhones. The magnets would thus be more powerful, while the associated external battery would prove to be more imposing. The wired power supply, on the other hand, reaches thirty watts, which is enough to obtain 50% charge in thirty minutes minimum.

Finally, let’s not forget that most iPhone users protect their mobile with a shell silicone to avoid heavy repair costs in the event of glass breakage. Another component that Apple must play with for reverse charging.
