Wireless charging could be coming to the iPhone next year according to a new report from Nikkei via 9to5 Mac, as Foxconn is said to be currently testing wireless charging modules for the 2017 iPhone.
Nikkei says that the module that Foxconn is testing is actually integrated into the iPhone. It’s not known if the module will be for all iPhone models, or just for the top-of-the range models.
Whether or not the module makes it to the final version of next year’s iPhone apparently depends on what sort of yield rate Foxconn is able to get for the product. This means that there must be enough satisfactory units in a production batch to enable large-scale production of the module. Or, in the words of the anonymous source, “whether the feature can eventually make it into Apple’s updated devices will depend on whether Foxconn can boost the yield rate to a satisfactory level later on.”
