Rumor has Apple, Samsung adopting wireless charging
Apple and Samsung are expected to add wireless charging to their phones in 2013, industry sources for <em>DigiTimes</em> claim. The people don't elaborate, except to suggest that Apple will probably develop its own wireless charging system, whether integrated directly into iPhones or dependent on connected accessories. Third-party wireless charging accessories are already available for the iPhone, but are dependent on special cases and charging stands.<br /><br />The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/280596==http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20130308PD210.html" rel='nofollow'>rumor</a> may be questionable, since most reports have pointed to Apple <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/280597==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/05/april.getting.serious.consideration.for.fifth.gen. ipad.launch/" rel='nofollow'>launching an iPhone 5S</a> this year, not a major new model. Wireless charging would likely require a significant overhaul, especially since the 5 uses an aluminum shell. Apple may also be hesitant to add technology that could increase the weight and thickness of its phones, even if just slightly.
