Apple’s next-gen iPhone 8 will include a Smart Connector designed to assist with wireless charging and, interestingly enough, some VR/AR features as well. While Apple hasn’t yet made a play in the VR/AR space, it’s no secret that Tim Cook is especially excited about the potential for augmented reality, even going so far as to claim that the technology may be as impactful as the smartphone.
At this point, it’s a safe bet that the iPhone 8 will in fact include wireless charging functionality. Indeed, a number of credible sources have corroborated this rumor over the past few months. Earlier this year, word surfaced that Apple has spent the last three years working with Broadcom on a wireless charging solution. And speaking to how seriously Apple views the feature, a Reuters report from February relayed that Apple currently has “at least five different groups working on wireless charging technology.” The Verifier also notes that a new version of the Apple TV is in the works and that the company’s fifth iteration of its media set top box may also come with support for VR/AR features.
