    Yes, it's a slow news day. The idea for this topic came just now while listing to a podcast about apple tips.

    I've always thought that Qi sounds like "key"... but now I'm hearing it pronounced like "Chee". I've heard other variations as well, but "Key" and "Chee" are the two I hear the most.

    So what is correct. How do you pronounce it?

    Yep, it’s pronounced chee. It’s of some Asian origin I do believe. It’s the same life force they talk about with acupuncture, Buddhism, and even as an energy source in manga/anime.

    For me it’s Key, like the iPhone 10 is ex.
    Right pronunciation or not, I’ll decide how I say it

    Until I heard that it is correctly spoken as 'chee' I was saying 'key'. However, because I didn't focus so much on wireless charging, it wasn't a big deal for me to change.

    Having said this, pronouncing it as ‘Chee’ will make people what the heck you’re talking about while they’ll immediately know what you mean by ‘key’.

    Which is why I posted the question! I have heard it referred to as "key" for some time... then suddenly, on different podcasts, I was hearing chee!

    I’ve been saying chee because that’s how I’ve always heard it pronounced at CES.
