Apple might also be planning to create an iPhone that is capable of charging without contraptions. The next iPhone (5S or 6) is possibly due to come out on August this year, while the Samsung Galaxy S IV will be formally launched on the 14th in Times Square New York.
According to SamMobile, Samsung will use Qi technology for wireless charging on the Galaxy S IV. On the other hand, Apple will not use this wireless technology, which Samsung helps develop. Instead, they will rely on an in-house technology that they have developed for wireless charging.
Other mobile companies that have taken to wireless charging are LG, HTC and also Nokia, among others. This new feature will be quite useful for people who do not have time to put down their phones for a moment to charge or those who do not like bringing wires and contraptions.
