Do I need to use wireless charging?

It's a good thing Apple went with the Qi standard.

At a starting price of $699, it fills the niche between current offering and the new iPhone X. That means that Powermat can push firmware updates to in-store pads, allowing the company to add Qi charging without requiring that stores like Starbucks physically replace all of its chargers. No searching for that missing cable.

The most notable feature in the 8 and 8 Plus, then, is wireless charging.

One group definitely excited about Apple's move is the accessory industry.

The Apple iPhone 8 Plus comes with an all-new aluminium and glass design. It provides upto 21 hours of talktime. The only downside to this is that iPhone owners will require USB-C power adapters in order to charge so fast. It is claimed to be 25% faster than the previous-generation A10. Not an insignificant chunk of change, to be sure. It cut the prices of the iPhone 7 series and 6S series phones by $100 and trimmed the price of its SE model by $50. That's right, get ready to upgrade the way you power up, because the iPhone 8 uses a wireless charger, as well as the classic lightning cord.

There's nothing quite like a bubble bath lit by Philips Hue lights.

Apple actually doesn't include a wireless charging mat in the box with its new iPhones, so you'll have to buy one separately. As 9to5Mac points out, there are three USB-C wall charger Apple offers on its website, with the cheapest one priced at $49. Telit IoT Innovation Summit is a one-day, IoT immersion event that showcases insightful keynotes and breakout sessions focusing on smart solutions and tools, technologies and resources.

This process only works when both coils resonate at the same frequency, which is why its known as resonant, or magnetic, coupling. And Apple's sheer size helps it negotiate favourable prices from suppliers that are dependent on the iPhone.

Depending on which phone you want, they range from $700 to $1,000. The company previously told me that the update across its whole network should be fully completed by the time consumers receive the new iPhones, though.

And, swiping to go home is not a bad user interface paradigm. Your iPhone will suddenly glow with new vibrancy.

Yet none of this is revolutionary. Here are the official iPhone 8 accessories that you need to know about. The rumor says that this new charging case with cost $69. Not so with the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 and 8 plus offer improvements like wireless charging, a better camera and faster processor. This will let you store over 2,500 albums on the phone at high quality.
