iPhone 6 will feature Wireless Charging according to a new report

According to surveys, the iPhone 6 is considered to be the most anticipated Apple smartphone of all the time. With that in mind, it’s not surprising that all sorts of rumors and speculations about the device are floating around these days. We already have some idea about its possible design and specs, but the latest rumors also talk a bit about its features. Among these features, we find connectivity options like Near Field Communication (NFC) and improved 4G capabilities. A report citing “sources close to the situation” also claims that the iPhone 6 will include Wireless Charging. While this feature isn’t exactly groundbreaking, we have to note that there isn’t a standard regarding Wireless Charging surfaces as of yet. The article mentions that Apple is now ready to commit to a standard, but the exact details are not yet known. But we do know that the iPhone 6 comes with a design that allows for energy transfer through an inductive charging surface.

Meanwhile, many other reports still talk about the upcoming device’s display. Rumors about this are plentiful, but are often in conflict with one another. However, most sources seem to agree that the iPhone 6 will come in two variants. Apple is well-aware that customers are hoping to see a bigger display on the flagship. One the other hand, not everybody finds huge panels to be all that appealing. So in an attempt to please everyone, the iPhone 6 will arrive with a 4.7-inch display, alongside a larger 5.5-inch(possibly 5.7-inch) version. Reports on the later are still a little vague, and rumor has it that this variant has been delayed so the company must have encountered some problems. The 4.7-inch version however seems to be on track and a release date is schedule for later this year, most likely around September. This variant of the upcoming flagship is said to come with 416 pixel density and 1704 x 960 resolution in order to preserve the 16:9 aspect ratio.

On the hardware side, we can expect to see either a quad-core A8 processor or an advanced version of the A7. The iPhone 6 will come with a shooter capable of capturing high quality images that’s said to be the best iPhone camera to date. Unfortunately further details are still scarce, with some sources suggesting a 13-megapixel sensor while others are saying 10MP+ is more likely. There is little to no information regarding the amount of RAM, battery life or other important specs. In regards to the price, we can expect Apple’s upcoming flagship to cost a bit more than your regular smartphone. The estimated sum revolves somewhere around the $700 mark for the 4.7-inch, according to analysts. The bigger version will cost about $100 more.

Last but not least, the iPhone 6 is believed to run on iOS 8, the new operating system recently unveiled by Apple at the WWDC. We’ll make sure to keep you up to date as soon as we learn anything else so stay tuned.

  1. There are millions of rumours flying around, I don’t really think its any use just speculating. Although the “two models” rumour seems pretty likely. Its weird that apple is the only company to use that ploy. I think the “S” and “C” model is going to be used by apple for many years to come

    It’s almost a given 2 new iPhones will be released this year. One having a 4.7 inch screen and the other a 5.5 inch screen. What isn’t known are the names for each phone. It could be the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s but I think more realistically it would be the smaller screen one being referred to as the iPhone 6 and the larger screen one being known as the iPhone Air. After all the iPhone Air would be the premium iPhone costing $100-$200 more than the iPhone 6. Imagine the iPhone Air starting out at $399 with contract ($850 unlocked) while the iPhone 6 starts out at $199 with contract ($650 unlocked). I myself would pay the $200 difference for the 64 GB iPhone Air model which would be $599 with contract. I always go for the highest storage on the highest end model. Mainly for all the apps and games I play. And if Apple’s iPhones do go the wireless route, will they include the wireless mat or will we have to pay extra for the mat?

    • You know every top tier android phone has this feature now. My Nexus 4 had the charging feature almost 2 years ago. What are you waiting for get a 5.5″ screen and wireless charging now.

  3. I’m already trying to figure out how to spend the 3 seconds I use plugging my current phone it in at night and the one second unplugging it the morning. Maybe I’ll go on a cruise!

    • you forgot the time you spend reaching for the cord, especially when it falls back behind your desk or between the wall and your bed.. ugh

  4. I love these articles that say “we know”.

  5. Wireless charging like everyone else had 2 years ago? Get out – next you will tell me they will make it with a 4.5″ screen!

  6. Hello. Phil A Mignon here. Will the wireless charging work if I don’t have wifi? Thank you.
