After the long wait, as per the rumors and leaks are suggesting that Apple is finally ready to make the leap with iPhone 8. But wait, unfortunately, there’s a slight surprise for the iPhone 8 fans, as per the renowned Apple blogger John Gruber explains in a tweet:

In the tweet John explained, iPhone 8's wireless charging feature could be sold as an optional extra, leaked images of Apple's wireless charging pads have revealed.

John Gruber, an Apple expert, said the iPhone 8 could work with a wireless charger but could require an additional accessory in order to work.

While replying to one of the comments from his followers, Gruber also seems certain that the method of wireless charging will be inductive. Apple has previously patented radio-frequency methods of charging devices, but the Apple Watch – the only wireless charging Apple product to date – uses inductive charging.

If you remember, in the recently leaked pictures on Chinese social media Weibo about the wireless charging showing the wireless charging confirm that Apple is working on a wireless charger ahead of its release of the iPhone 8 next month.

The charging pads in the images are expected to have been designed for the iPhone 8 but will be sold separately. They could also work with two other devices, possibly called the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus.

He explained, "New features like waterproof and wireless charging now require some different testing, and waterproof function will alter the assembly process a bit."

Apple has previously filed patents for charging smartphones using Wi-Fi signals. But it appears the company will opt for inductive technology rather than the signal method for the iPhone 8.
