According to a new report, Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup may feature larger charging coils than its current flagship lineup features. The coils could offer wireless charging in addition to faster recharging.
Currently, the tech giant’s wireless charging system, MagSafe, provides up to 15W charging power to be delivered to a compatible iPhone which is double the speed of Qi-based wireless charging which supports 7.5W. However, Apple could increase 15W to higher levels in its upcoming iPhone lineup.
Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup could come with larger charging coils and reverse wireless charging
According to sources of Max Weinbach reported by YouTuber EverythingApplePro, the tech giant could equip iPhone 13 with a larger wireless coil as compared to iPhone 12. This would increase the surface area of space used for the process of wireless charging which would allow higher wattages to be used for charging.
Weinbach also speculates that increasing the coil size may allow iPhone to recharge other devices through wireless charging – an option that has been available to Android users for many years now. The introduction of wireless charging to iPhone 13 could allow the device to recharge wireless charging compatible devices like AirPods.
According to an earlier report from June, the tech giant is currently working on a new iPad Pro model with MagSafe wireless charging as well as reverse wireless charging capabilities that could allow it to charge other devices. The report further claimed that Apple has not shelved its wireless charging mat, AirPower, and is still working on improving the technology to charge multiple devices at once like iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch.
As per previous reports and rumors we have covered, it is expected that Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup will be identical to iPhone 12 with 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, 6.1-inch, 6.1-inch Pro, and 6.7-inch 13 Pro Max models. Other rumors point at the lineup featuring a faster A15 chip, in-display Touch ID, up to 1TB storage, a smaller notch, 120Hz “ProMotion” displays, and bigger batteries than iPhone 12. It has also been rumored that all iPhone models in the lineup will feature sensor-shift stabilization, including the non-Pro models.
