Wireless charging for gadgets is available since a while. There are some accessory makers like Powermat that offer solutions. Obviously an iPhone with integrated wireless charging would be intriguing. Now celebrity gossip site TMZ has again an iPhone 6 leak. This time they claim that the iPhone 6 has wireless charging.
The image shows a small black gap next to the front facing camera. I don't know how TMZ comes to the conclusion that this thing is connected to wireless charging. If you look at the solutions from Powermat you do not see such a "port."
TMZ refers to a patent Apple has on wireless charging from 2012. Every gadget maker has a wireless charging patent. Eventually all smartphones will be charged wirelessly. Will the iPhone 6 have this as a feature? I don't think so.
Last week TMZ leaked a series of images of what they said is a stolen iPhone 6 from a Foxconn factory. It just looks though like all the other leaked iPhone 6 dummies.
Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 6 on September 9.
