According to a new leak, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 13 could include reverse wireless charging.
Apple’s iPhone 13 which is expected to be the first device to ship with iOS 15 out of the box, is expected to support both wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. According to rumours, Apple will include a larger wireless charging coil in the iPhone 13, which could imply support for reverse wireless charging.
Previous rumours suggested that Apple’s next flagship smartphone would have a smaller notch, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and a ProMotion variable refresh rate display with LTPO technology. According to a new video from EverythingApplePro and Max Weinbach, the iPhone 13 may have larger wireless charging coils than the iPhone 12, possibly for more effective heat dissipation and higher wireless charging wattage.
Although iPhones have supported wireless charging since 2017, the iPhone 13’s rumoured wireless charging capability means that the iPhone 13’s battery can be used to wirelessly charge another iPhone or wireless charging-compatible peripherals like AirPods and the Apple Watch. Surprisingly, the iPhone 11 was rumoured to support this feature as well, but it never materialised.
Apple is expected to unveil the new iPhone 13 smartphone line later this year in September, along with the public release of iOS 15 for older iPhones and iPads.
