Rumors are a-swirlin‘ that the iPhone 8 is going to feature some kind of wireless charging. Although Android phones have had wireless capabilities for years, it’s a very particular kind of wireless capability: you have to physically place your phone on a special pad, and taking your device more than a couple millimeters away from the pad takes it off charge.
Sure, it’s 10% more useful than charging with cables, but I can’t imagine Apple copying a feature that debuted with the Galaxy S4. So if Apples does go the wireless charging route with the iPhone 8, you can expect it to have a little more range.
