It is not the first time we heard rumors talking about wireless charging capabilities for next year's iPhone which might be released as the iPhone 8 or even the iPhone 10 because of the 10-year iPhone anniversary in 2017. Last year, it was reported, that Apple might be interested in integrating Energous' Wattup technology into the iPhone next year, which is superior to current wireless charging technologies because it can charge from a distance.

New rumors started by Nikkei Asian Review surfaced yesterday, stating that Hon Hai Precision Industry, which you may know as Foxconn, is developing and testing wireless charging modules for next year's iPhone. According to the insider source quoted by Nikkei, it is currently unclear whether the modules will be integrated in all iPhone models or just the top model, that is said to also feature a curved OLED screen. Also, the sources stated that yield rates are not satisfactory so far and that they would have to improve to be considered for the final product.
