In other words, if you are buying the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus or the iPhone X, also be willing to shell out an additional Rs 6,000 on a new charger and cable for it. The bundle charger will charge your phone but slowly and you won't be able to make use of the fast charging feature that Apple has built inside the new iPhones. Well, there is no such information we have at this moment and for that, we have to wait for some official confirmation regarding the pricing of the new AirPods, a Wireless Charging Case and the replacements pricing from the giant. Unfortunately for the others, it is harder to copy Apple's financial playbook than it is for Apple to copy exciting new features. That inadvertently undermines the value proposition of the iPhone 8's only real differentiating feature, leading to a meaningful trade-off: You can either charge wirelessly at a rate comparable to what you're used to, or charge wired at a dramatically faster rate (50% charge in 30 minutes) if you're willing to buy the requisite equipment.
Apple does give you a Lightning to USB-A cable bundled in the box but that cannot do the job. The new iPhone X costs even more at $199.
It has been adopted by a number of other smartphones since, and McDonalds and Starbucks have been among the retailers to hold trials of wireless-enabled furniture in their branches.
The iPhone 8 series comes in three colors - one dubbed "space gray", a silver and a new gold finish - and two data-storage configurations (64 and 256 gigabytes).
"The Apple 29W USB-C Power Adapter offers fast, efficient charging at home, in the office or on the go". You'll know if your charger is OK to use if it has the Qi logo and says "Qi Certified" on its packaging. Fast charging requires a USB-C to Lightning cable and the USB-C wall charger.
"The wireless carriers started this year's iPhone launch promotions on a more reserved note than those of the previous year", Kvaal said. After all, it's not difficult to use a phone charger.
It's a fact of life that disturbs Android fans, but let's face it: it's true.
The Wireless Power Consortium that develops the Qi standard was quick to call Apple's adoption a "pivotal day for wireless charging".
Yet none of this is revolutionary.
One group definitely excited about Apple's move is the accessory industry. This makes your shots look great, even at night, by eliminating the effects of your shaky hands.
