Apple has released a list of 14 car brands whose wireless chargers will work with the iPhone 8.

Though the company doesn’t list out for its flagship iPhone X, the same chargers should work.

If you’re wondering whether your car’s wireless phone charger will work with this year’s iPhones, an Apple support document has the answer. It lists 14 brands whose chargers will work with the iPhone 8. However, there are few limitations with both the iPhone 8 Plus and four of the car brands.

Apple says that the wireless chargers in cars made by the following ten makers support the Qi standard and will work with the iPhone 8:

  • Audi
  • BMW
  • Chrysler
  • Ford
  • Honda
  • Mercedes-Benz
  • PSA
  • Toyota
  • Volkswagen
  • Volvo

It does, however, mention that the larger iPhone 8 Plus may not be able to fit into the charging areas on all models.

Some automotive wireless chargers have physical size constraints and might not fit every phone. If you’re planning on buying a car with a wireless charger, make sure that your iPhone will fit in the charger first.

There are four additional makers which offer some compatible models. However, only the 2018 models support the Qi standard, so previous ones won’t be compatible for the charging:

  • Buick
  • Cadillac
  • Chevrolet
  • GMC

There are currently only nine compatible models available across these four makers:

  • 2018 GMC Terrain
  • 2018 GMC Yukon
  • 2018 GMC Sierra
  • 2018 Chevrolet Bolt
  • 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • 2018 Chevrolet Silverado
  • 2018 Chevrolet Suburban
  • 2018 Cadillac Escalade
  • 2018 Buick Enclave

If you’re fine with an older iPhone, there’s a variety of wireless charging cases you can buy.
