Apple’s 2019 iPhones are going to have a two-way wireless charging feature that will allow the iPhone to charge other devices like the AirPods, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo again confirmed in a report sent out to investors today.
Kuo previously mentioned the feature briefly in a February note, and today he goes into a bit more depth about the suppliers who will benefit from the feature.
Two-way wireless charging, or bilateral charging, will let the Qi-based iPhones coming in 2019 charge another iPhone or the new AirPods with Wireless Charging Case. You’ll essentially be able to charge any Qi-based device with your iPhone, as it will work as a wireless charger itself.
This is a feature that Samsung has already debuted in its 2019 Galaxy smartphones, and in those devices, it’s known as Wireless PowerShare.
