    There have been a couple of rumors swirling around the new iPhone: more specifically, potential wireless charging capabilities!

    Is this a particular feature that you're excited about, or would you rather opt for the classic way of charing your iPhone?

    Is there a maybe another rumor that you're expecially excited about regarding the new iPhone? What to you think?!

    The wireless charging is nice, but it would nice if the rumors that it’s only half the speed of other wireless chargers I would be a little disappointed.

    For other rumors I’m excited about? Maybe the more recent rumor that the new longer power button will be a multi purpose button for Siri and camera shutter controls.

    I’m excited about wireless charging. The only problem I will have is if it is way slower than the industry standard.

    I have a Spigen wireless charger on my bedside cabinet and it’s great, I’m probably going to invest in several and place them all round the house for convenience... I tried an S8 Plus a while back and that charged wirelessly faster than my 8 Plus but it’s certainly not slow.

    I've been very excited about this option. I plan on having several as well... for home, work and my "go bag" so that I can use one in other places. I am still undecided about which one to buy. Because I want to buy several, I'm looking for affordability, but I also want quality. I from what I've read, I "think" I only want to purchase only qi certified! Since I'm not getting a new phone until the holidays, I've got the "luxury" of benefiting from the experience and reviews of others!

    I would definitely recommend the Spigen chargers, very good quality and the price isn’t bad either. I have the stand type and I have just order the flat disc type. With electronics I would always rather buy a “named brand” than some Chinese version and Spigen have always provided good stuff whether it’s chargers or cases.

    Take it or leave it. The way I charge my devices, I like for them to be sitting up on my nightstand so I can see them from my laying, sitting or standing position.

    I’ve only been using wireless charging for my X, and it’s super convenient and cool!

    I bought a wireless charger. With that being said, I have used it once. It does cause a lot of heat with the battery, so I am kind of wary of the effect that will take on the battery down the road. It is nice to have, but not a deal breaker by any means. I would much rather them stick a fast charger in the box.

    I've been using wireless charging for years thanks to Android phones using it since 2012. So when I use it on my iPhone X, it's just out of habit now. I'm glad Apple finally put that feature on iPhone, but they should've done it a couple of years ago.

    How much is a ton? From my experience it is not normal.
    My SO and I are both charging our 8+ on a wireless and not getting any heat. And that’s after any amount of time. Ranging from 5 minutes to a few hours.

    I have read the heat generated with wireless charging due to the inefficiency of it is not good for the battery longevity. I'm not interested.
    Plus, I pick up my phone way to much while it's plugged in and charging

    Wireless charging is alright. I purchased one right after I purchased my iPhone 8. It stays at my desk at work. When I opt to charge it at home (during the weekend), I simply use a lightning charging cable. To be honest, I don't need anything more than that.

    How do these wireless chargers get the power to the phone to charge? Do they have some sort of regenerated energy source built in to use power to charge or what?

    It uses magnet or something like that to transfer the energy.
    There’s a lot of videos on YouTube explaining how it works.

    Ok but what powers the magnet? Does it have a built in power source of some sort?

    I’m not sure, but a device that supports wireless charging has this round piece of metal or some sort inside of it that enables wireless charging.

    I bought a Spigen wireless charge base off Amazon for $25 simply for my desk at work. It is more convenient for me to just place it on there since I usually place the phone on top of my desk anyway. But at home, I just plug in.
