Perhaps Apple will include it in one of the iOS updates after the start of smartphone sales.
The entire iPhone 11 line is equipped with parts for reverse wireless charging of other devices, but Apple has disabled this feature by default. The reason for the decision is unknown, but the function may be activated later. This was announced by insider and blogger Sonny Dickson with reference to “reliable sources.”
Dickson did not specify the details of the technology. It is unclear how much power it gives to and what area of the rear panel can charge third-party devices.
Analysts and journalists prior to the presentation of Apple on September 10 predicted the presence of reverse wireless charging function in new iPhones. However, on the eve of the event, Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple had abandoned the function. As one of the possible reasons, he called the inconsistency of Apple technology standards.
Sonny Dickson is known as a reliable source of news about Apple. An insider several times reported problems with the AirPower wireless charging mat, which Apple eventually canceled.
Experts will be able to find out the veracity of the information from Dickson sources on September 20 after the start of sales of iPhone 11.
