    Is the wireless charger included with the phone?

    No. You're on your own to find wireless charging and fast charging accessories.

    But there are a lot of good ones out there under $20.

    - I just ordered (2) - Turbot 3-Coil QI Wireless Charging Phone Stands. Took me a while to decide on which ones. Most don't come with either cables or adapters. Amazon has a lot on sale (as per post above) well under $20.

    I had a couple Samsung ones laying around and got a few more to put around the house since now there will be 3 people with phones with wireless charging capability. I like them also because they are Qi certified. Not hard to find new or open box on eBay under $20 as well that includes the cable and wall adapter.

    Interested in seeing how much the Apple one will cost that can charge multiple items. Would work good for my phone and watch on my nightstand.

    Also wondering if the watch would charge with the Turbot 3-Coil QI Wireless Charger.
    And, from other posts online, it is important to get one with QI, right?

    Thanks

    What he means is that you have to plug in the wireless pad into an electrical outlet in order to charge the phone. You the lay the phone on the pad.

    I would assume that would go without needing to be said. So that may be why I am confused about his post. I don't think anyone believes the iPhone will charge by putting it on an unplugged charging pad or by electrons in the air.

    And you won’t be able to charge the new Series 3 Watches on QI chargers.

    Apple uses a different technology with their AirPower wireless chargers to charge the series 3.
    The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus as well as the iPhone X, however, will be able to be charged with standard QI chargers.

    Just wait for the AirPower to arrive at the Apple Stores and try it out for yourself.
    I can’t speculate about this with a clear conscience.

    Me neither, so I’m just blaming the sneeze if they did mention it and I somehow missed it.

    All Apple said was in 2018. That narrows it down!

    I can't even imagine what they are going to charge...with that being said, at least you know it will be supported and work extremely well.

    We already have two TYLT VU QI phone stands that we used for previous Android devices, so we'll not have to buy any.

    On my way home from the Apple store this coming Friday, I plan to charge my new iPhone 8 via the built-in wireless charger in my car. I’m eagerly looking forward to that.
