News slips that wireless charging for iPhone 8 is coming
Wireless charging will be part of the iPhone 8, manufacturer Wistron said, stealing a march on Apple which has not made the official announcement yet.
The Taiwanese company confirmed that the new 5.5-inch iPhones to be launched later this year would have waterproof and wireless charging, Nikkei Asian Review reported.
"Assembly process for the previous generations of [iPhones] have not changed much, though new features like waterproof and wireless charging now require some different testing, and waterproof function will alter the assembly process a bit," Hwang said after the company's annual meeting.
Apple is expected to release another 4.7-inch handset with flat display and a premium version with a slightly curved screen.
