As the date of the official launch of the next generation iPhone is coming nearer, a number of leaks and rumours are increasing every other day. And the biggest rumour we’ve been hearing since February is about the wireless charging.

Apple is expected to launch its upcoming iPhone with full-speed wireless charging capability. And as TNW reports, it is a confirmed rumour.

The Next Web team were approached yesterday by Allen Fung, GM of another mobile accessory maker, RAVPower, he says:

“Our sources tell us the next iPhones have special technology for wireless charging that we have in this charger. Our wireless charger will wirelessly charge the next iPhones at full speed, as well as being able to charge other mobile devices wirelessly.”

Their accounts coordinate the rumours heard not long ago. When combined with the switch to a glass back (from the current metal one), which goes about as a superior channel for wireless charging — despite the fact that charging through a metal back is now possible, thanks to Qualcomm — we think it’s now safe to state the !0th generation iPhone will definitely feature wireless charging.

While early rumours recommended an energizing solution— one that included long-range charging by Energous that enabled a gadget to charge from over the room — we’ll take what we can get. What’s more, what we can get, for now, seems, by all accounts, to be the Qi protocol — a wireless charging system that requires your gadget keep up contact with the charging base. It’s wire-free, however, it’s certainly not the sexiest solution.

But it’s a beginning.
