Apple might have disabled bilateral wireless charging on its new iPhones

Apple might have disabled bilateral wireless charging on its new iPhones 1

Ahead of Tuesday’s launch, bilateral charging was one of the things that seemed a sure addition to the iPhone’s feature list. Both Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, two of the most accurate sources of pre-release Apple information, said the new iPhones would include the feature. Then, just days before the event, both reversed course.

While it’s possible Apple could enable the feature in the future (if, in fact, it’s there), it seems unlikely. Alongside the iPhone 11, there were rumors Apple planned to announce a Tile-like tracker called Apple Tags on Tuesday. We didn’t get Apple Tags on Tuesday, but, at least in that case, there’s information on the company’s website that suggests they’re on their way. There’s nothing like that for reverse charging.

While mostly a vanity feature on Android phones like the Galaxy S10, bilateral charging has potential utility on the iPhone. Unlike USB-C, Apple’s Lightning port doesn’t support reverse charging, meaning you can’t plug another device into the iPhone to charge it. Additionally, a lot of iPhone users own an Apple Watch and AirPods, and would likely appreciate a way to charge them in a pinch. We probably won’t have to wait long to see if there’s truth to the rumor. Next week, we should find out if the iPhone 11 has the hardware once groups like iFixit start taking apart the phone.
