Apple’s next iPhone will support wireless charging, according to JP Morgan.
In a note published on Tuesday, the firm said that Apple’s upcoming smartphone will include the company’s new wireless charging chip.
However, the specific models that will be carrying this functionality weren’t specified. That said, KGI Securities analyst and frequent source on Apple news Ming-Chi Kuo said earlier this year that this year’s expected iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8 models will launch with the wireless charging feature.
JPMorgan also didn’t note which wireless charging standard would be supported by the iPhone. Broadcom sells chips that support both main competitors in this area, Qi and PMA.
In the same report, JPMorgan also says Apple’s new iPhones will support Bluetooth 5.0, allowing any Bluetooth-supported accessories, such as speakers or headphones, to work at further distances from an iPhone. Multiple Bluetooth devices can be used simultaneously as well.
Last week, Kuo also said that the iPhone 8 may not ship in September, breaking a tradition of Apple’s next iPhone model being revealed and released in that same month.
