iPhone Maker Forges Ahead with Development of Wireless Charging Solution on Apple Watch

A report said the iPhone maker is forging ahead with development of a bespoke wireless charging solution.

A report  rumors surrounding Apple’s ongoing development of cutting-edge wireless charging technologies. Portable device users have for decades been literally tethered to wall outlets, but that is slowly changing thanks to advances in wireless charging tech.

Apple just recently dipped its toe into the wireless charging pond with Apple Watch. The wearable is Apple’s first device to eschew external electrical contacts in favor of inductive charging technology. Apple Watch’s Magnetic Charging Cable, however, can be fairly described as a tether since it requires contact with the device to work. Additionally, Apple Watch is slow to charge, a drawback of many wireless charging solutions.

There is evidence that Apple is investigating powerful technology that could lead to a world without without wires.

Earlier this year, the company was said to be working with Asian suppliers to overcome challenging engineering hurdles associated with long-distance wireless charging systems for iPhone and iPad.
