With the new iPhone on the way – as is the same with any Apple release – a bunch of rumours and supposed features have surfaced, too.
According to insider reports, the iPhone XR‘s older brother will hold the “bilateral” charging software. With this feature, the phone will be able to mimic a power pad by wirelessly charging any other device placed on top.
Also utilising the same bilateral charging feature is Apple’s upcoming “AirPower”; a charging mat for any Apple product, which can charge more than one device at a time. First rumoured to be released in 2018, the mats have apparently been moved for release in 2019 and will also be compatible with the new AirPods case coming soon, too.
A reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says AirPods 2 will support wireless charging and upgraded Bluetooth connectivity. He says AirPower will ship during the first half of 2019.

Just watch our older iPhones mysteriously decay and break down as the new release happens…
