The US Patent and Trademark Office have recently released information that indicates wireless charging might be on queue for the Apple iPhone 8. However, considering the fact that the patent was filed in towards the end of last year, it is a bit surprising that it did not make its way to the iPhone 7 this year like many had hoped it would.


If the wireless charging had made its way to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus as expected, Apple would not be receiving so much hate for disabling the ability to listen to your headphones while putting your phone on charge. Theoretically, you can still do that with the help of the "AirPods" introduced by Apple or just a dock, as suggested by Phil Schiler. However, shelling out an additional $159 for the AirPods after spending a premium amount to buy the smartphone itself may not appeal to everyone to be honest.


Let us hope that we see more innovation from Apple in 2017 as this year will mark the tenth anniversary of the iPhone. Also, it makes one ask the question; did Apple purposefully leave the wireless charging out of the equation to introduce it to the "ifans" on the iconic smartphone's 10th birthday? If so, we are not impressed.
